Europe’s First Hyperloop Test Facility Unveiled [Video]

On 1 June, Hardt unveiled Europe’s first hyperloop test facility on the TU Delft campus. Hardt was founded as a company by a number of the winners from Elon Musk’s hyperloop competition earlier this year. Together with the European construction company BAM, they have built a test facility for this futuristic transport system.

The facility consists of a tube with a length of 30 m and an external diameter of 3.2 m. It will allow testing of the systems in a vacuum at low speeds, including safety, propulsion, gliding, and the stabilization of the hyperloop vehicle.
