EuroTube builds testing infrastructure

EuroTube (an interdisciplinary team of engineers and scientists) builds the first testing infrastructure for vacuum transportation in Europe.

It will allow test and research vehicles to be operated efficiently in an unprecedented target speed regime of 700 to 900 km/h. This is a minimal viable and world-wide yet untouched requirement for the sustainable deployment of vactrain concepts, such as for Hyperloop. The first research facility with a 3km long test track will be built in Valais, Switzerland.

It is expected to be the first European test track open to external groups for research, engineering and prototyping and, possibly, the longest in the world at completion.
