Elecnor helps 1,000 vulnerable families in El Salvador

Elecnor has delivered food kits in El Salvador, a total of 1,000 units of approximately 8 kg of basic foodstuffs, which were delivered by volunteers from the conuntry subsidiary in nine towns from two municipalities in the departments of Sonsonate and Ahuachapán.

The food was delivered to families with very low resources or who have been left without economic income during the pandemic caused by COVID-19. Let us remember that these populations have also been severely affected by the recent tropical storms Amanda and Cristobal, which caused severe damage in the area.  

In order to manage the delivery of the kits efficiently, Elecnor was assisted by the National Director of Civil Protection, Disaster Prevention and Mitigation of El Salvador, with the support of the Spanish Embassy in San Salvador, and with the local departmental representatives.

The Country Manager in El Salvador, Juan Enrique Fernández, told that "it has been a great experience for the whole team. Being able to help these families and, in particular, children with nutritional problems who are "especially vulnerable" to disease, and more so in a context such as that derived from the Covid-19, is the greatest reward".

THANKS to the team for participating voluntarily and making this solidarity initiative possible:

Elecnor in Central America

In 1984, Elecnor won an emblematic contract in Central America, both in terms of volume and its social and economic importance, the Guatemala-El Salvador electrical interconnection. Three years later, with the start of operations in Honduras with the awarding of seven turnkey substations, Elecnor established itself with a stable presence in the Central American area until today, collaborating during all these years in the sustainable energy development of these countries.
Elecnor in Central America is currently building an electric transmission system in the Department of Sonsonate and Ahuachapán. The contract includes 230 kV transmission lines of 44 kilometres with two 2 km underground sections, as well as the construction of two new GIS technology substations and the expansion of an existing one.  This project will mean a transformation in the energy matrix of the country and of Central America.
