Over the years, transport of people and goods has become a key part of an increasingly globalised economy, reaching a value of €4.14 Trillion in 2017, a 6% of the Gross World Product.
However, this expansion has not been trouble-free, and the infrastructure congestion, pollution or oil dependence have become issues to be solved in order to carried out transport in a sustainable manner. That is why in 2013 the concept of hyperloop has been created, a transport system based on pods that travel inside a tube with close to vacuum conditions; which allows it to reach 1,000 km/h, combining the speed of the plane, the convenience of the train and the periodicity of the metro making far journeys faster and more comfortable.
Despite its potential, the development of an Hyperloop system is a long-term project that will require the collaboration of different companies to overcome the various challenges that will arise, especially related to the scalability of their systems, the cost reduction and the operation of Hyperloop at a higher level. These challenges are mostly three: the very high cost of the infrastructure construction, the manufacture of vehicles and the improvement of the internal systems of the vehicle, especially propulsion and levitation, with the aim of optimizing them for the future complete scalability of the Hyperloop concept while ensuring the safety of passengers and cargo.
Our solution to ensure this scalability involves an approach to levitation and propulsion subsystems that diverge from the state-of-the-art, thus allowing reduced infrastructure costs, simpler maintenance, safer pressures and reduced energy consumption.
Zeleros Global was founded in 2016 by a group of hyperloop experts for the definitive development of the transport system in Europe. Its team has won several prizes in hyperloop design and development competitions. This project is expected to help in the final development of this transport system, also generating €261M in revenue.
