Hyperloop One has revealed first images of Nevada desert development site (‘DevLoop’) at Middle East Rail
Hyperloop is expected to perform a public trial in the first half of 2017. 500-meter full scale Hyperloop test structure weighs over one million kilograms Hyperloop One tube measures 3.3 meters in diameter. Hyperloop One is the only company building a functional Hyperloop system. Hyperloop promises close to half the construction and lower maintenance costs than high-speed rail and energy usage that is similar to a bicycle per kilogram-kilometer. UAE Hyperloop network could unlock economic value 3.5 to 4 times over high speed rail. Travel between major cities in the Gulf region could be less than one hour on Hyperloop.
