Get Ready to Travel Faster Than Sound: First Ever Hyperloop Capsule Flaunted in Spain


Unparalleled transportation technology- the Hyperloop capsule- is hot to trot to be stationed at the rail network soon. Us-based Hyperloop Transportation technology’s novel breakthrough has stunned the whole world.

The Hyperloop capsule is a shuttle which travels on magnetic rails like trains, but it will advance in a tube with little or possibly no air.

This giant technology will be set going by 2019. So far, the 32-metre “Quintero One” passenger capsule has been furnished in all respects and is ready to be sent to France at HyperloopTT’s research and development centre in Toulouse for additional assembly and integration into the system before it is used on one of the first commercial tracks.

“In 2019, this capsule will be fully optimised and ready for passengers,” said Bibop Gresta, chairman and co-founder of HyperloopTT.

“Since we have taken major steps in solving government regulations with our safety certification guidelines and insurance frameworks, we are now closer than ever to bringing Hyperloop to the world,” Mr Gresta added.

The 5-tonne capsule has 72 sensors, 75,000 rivets and 7,200 square metres of fibre. It is constructed completely out of HyperloopTT’s “Vibranium”, a specially made dual-layer smart composite material.

In May, HyperloopTT had proposed to set up the Hyperloop transportation system in Andhra Pradesh, connecting Anantapur, Amaravati, Vijayawada and Visakhapatnam as part of 700-800-km-long integrated public transit system.

The Maharashtra government too had signed a pact with the Richard Branson-led Virgin Group to build the Mumbai-Pune Hyperloop.

HyperloopTT is also set to build the first Hyperloop system in China as the company struck a deal in the country to build a test track in Guizhou province.
