The delegation was headed by the President of the Lempa River Hydroelectric Executive Commission, Mr. Daniel Alejandro Álvarez Campos.


The Lempa River Hydroelectric Executive Commission is an autonomous entity, created in 1945 by Legislative Decree, with powers to harness and develop the electrical potential of El Salvador’s natural resources, as well as other projects and actions associated with such activities.


The delegates visited the uSky passenger station and took a test ride in a safe and certified tropical uCar.

A 6-seat high-speed electric vehicle uFlash was of particular interest to the visitors especially for its paramount travel speed of 500 km/h. uFlash is designed for intercity and international commuting on uSky overpass with uSky rail serving as its core.

Apart from passenger transport complexes, the guests were presented with capabilities of uCont, an autonomous self-propelled electric cargo vehicle designed for the movement of 20' (TEU, Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units) and 40' (FEU, Forty-Foot Equivalent Units) cargo containers at speeds up to 100 km/h. uCont is an unmanned vehicle controlled automatically and driverless. uCont can be applied in logistics hubs, sea and inland ports, mining sites in various climatic conditions.

But the main purpose of the meeting was to present uSky Transport, demonstrating the possibility of implementing transport solutions in El Salvador. The presentation covered such proposals as:

  • connecting El Salvador International Airport with Plaza Los Cocos,

  • connecting El Salvador International Airport with San Salvador,

  • connecting the sea Port of Acajutla with an inland container terminal.

That said, in the long run, a larger-scale implementation of transport lines is feasible not within the country only, but even throughout the entire mainland:

  • construction of a public transport line in El Salvador (metro),

  • connecting the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans,

  • construction of Pan-Continental – American high-speed transport line.
