ITALY: The technical and economic feasibility of operating 550 km/h magnetic levitation vehicles on existing railway alignments in addition to conventional trains is to be studied by infrastucture manager RFI and Polish-Swiss maglev and hyperloop technology company Nevomo.
The longest passive magnetic levitation test facility in Europe will be built in Poland, with construction to begin this summer. Magrail technology company Nevomo has signed an agreement with Polish firm Ciech Sarzyna to lease land and infrastructure. This will allow Nevomo to build a full-scale 750m test track.
The magrail innovative technology may play an important role in railway investment projects and for the achievement of the European Green Deal objectives, a report prepared by Idom and Nevomo says.
Did you know that Polish startup ecosystem, with its 3000+ startups, 300+ coworking spaces, 130+ VCs, plenty of acceleration programmes and tech conferences, is one of the most developed in the CEE region?
Despite the pandemic, 2020 brought a lot of success in accelerating hyperloop technology. But, before hyperloop vehicles can gather speed, the possibility of using magnetic levitation on existing railway infrastructure is being explored.
Nevomo, formerly known as Hyper Poland, has completed the first magrail technology tests on a medium-sized track, with a focus on the performance of a linear motor and in mid-2021 the company plans to start full-scale tests. This is a major step towards implementing hyperloop in stages, leveraging existing railway infrastructure.
Although travel has been significantly curtailed during the pandemic, it remains a fundamental part of modern life. Whether getting from point A to point B means a quick trip around town or an extended journey across the planet, today’s travel experience can be complex and energy intense.
Have you ever thought of traveling by train from Warsaw to Berlin in thirty minutes? It may sound unreal, but it is not! Thanks to Nevomo team, traveling fast to a faraway destination can be possible soon.
Hyperloop is a 150-year-old European concept rebooted by Elon Musk. And Europeans have a strong chance of being the first to build it.
