Hyperloop pushes 800-km transport project in AP

    Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT)
    In a bid to offer hassle free and speedy transport system covering 800 km in Andhra Pradesh, the US-based Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) recently presented a pre-feasibility study for a project starting from Anantapur in the south to the port town of Visakhapatnam in the north of the state connecting the new capital Amaravati in the center. HTT proposes to set up a manufacturing complex that will focus on several aspects of Hyperloop project such as building the Tube, Capsule, track and 3D printing in the state. The company suggested execution in three phases with the initial phase running into 5-10 km straight section at Amaravati to demonstrate the working and benefits of the most modern ground transportation system. It says the northern and the southern sections can be built in two phases or can be undertaken simultaneously. Hyperloop is based on a concept in which a passenger capsule moves in a vacuum tube at high speeds. Last year the chief minister asked HTT to get back with a workable plan to execute the project and also demonstrate the technology by building a 15-20 km stretch between Vijayawada and Amaravati in the initial stage. The Hyperloop system is an emerging form of ultra-high-speed ground transportation system that moves people and freight. By undertaking this project, Andhra Pradesh and India would signal their desire to create a globally competitive region fuelled by ultra-high-speed mobility that is environment positive, energy efficient and sustainable. Hyperloop TT designs its systems to generate revenue and create employment opportunities, and does not depend on costly government subsidies unlike other transportation systems, chairman and co-founder of HTT, Bibop Gresta, said.
