Elon Musk’s Hyperloop arrives in Spain via Zaragoza


Company Hardt Hyperloop and city council Zaragoza signed an agreement so that tomorrow the capital will become the main host of the Hyperloop network who developed Elon Musk in his beginnings.

Back in 2012, Elon Musk supported the project magnetic train through pipes called Hyperloop, capable of reaching 1000 km/hwhich will revolutionize transportation. A train that does not pollute the environment, consumes little energy and is three times the speed of AVE.

After this first theoretical phase, various consortiums around the world are working to launch it. In Europe, the most advanced is the Hardt Hyperloop, which involves numerous private companies, the Dutch government and several European municipalities.

Hyperloop will arrive in Zaragoza

Zaragoza City Council and Hardt Hyperloop have signed an agreement that will make the capital tomorrow strategic hub of the European Hyperloop network. Thus, it joins nine other cities in the category of Rotterdam, Munich or Berlin.

Hardt Hyperloop is already building magnetic trains that will travel within a few empty pipes with an average speed of 700 km/h, although they can achieve a top speed of 1000 km/h on long stretches in a straight line. They will compete in speed with the planewith the advantage that they will be cheaper and do not pollute the environment.

In this video we can see the presentationHyperloop project in Zaragoza:

capsules Hardt Hyperloop They use both “permanent magnets”, that is, magnets with a constant magnetic field, and electromagnets. Permanent magnets lift the car without expending energy, and electromagnets stabilize it.. As a result, the suspension system consumes almost no energy: He is able to lift the weight of the car due to the energy of the light bulb.

The power plant pushes the car forward using electricity. Once the electric motor accelerates the capsule to cruising speed, only a small fraction of the power is required to maintain it. When braking, a significant amount of energy is recuperated.which will be used to power the next vehicle or stored in a battery.

high speeds they are possible thanks to the combination of levitation and a tube in which there is no air resistance. This environment is created by vacuum pumps that remove most of the air from the tube down to 0.1% atmospheric pressure. The energy used to travel with Hyperloop is 10 times less than road transport or aviation..

Hardt Hyperloop plans to conduct high-speed tests next year in Germany. It hopes to launch the first commercial network in 2030 and reach full capacity worldwide in 2050. First, it will be designed for the carriage of goods, and then for the carriage of passengers.


[CH] What will Hyperloop travel be like in 2030?

At speeds from 700 to 1000 km / h. you can get from madrid to barcelona in 40 minutesand walk from end to end of the Iberian Peninsula in just over 1 hour.

FROM the arrival of the Hard Hyperloop in Zaragozaold dream of Elon Musk This will become a reality in Spain. Presumably, other Spanish cities will join the project before construction begins.
