India is also interested in the Hyperloop trains and has already signed a transaction with Hyperloop Transportation Technologies
Despite the fact that before the advent of the first production train Hyperloop is still far, more and more countries are talking about their interest in the new mode of transport. Besides the United States and Europe interest in the Hyperloop demonstrate the UAE, but we now know that India has joined that list.
Reportedly, the company Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) has signed a deal with the government of the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. While we are talking about the Memorandum of understanding.
At the first stage of the HTT will assess the terrain and the possibility of the construction of the branch Hyperloop, which would connect the cities of Vijayawada and Amaravati. The distance between these cities is only 27 km away capsule «vacuum trains» will be able to overcome for about six minutes.
It is known that the transaction is funded mostly through private investment. Unfortunately, no accurate data and the cost of the transaction is also unknown. I find it interesting that HTT is supposedly going to be six months to evaluate all the nuances, and then construction should begin. Amid the actual lack of ready technology in this field to start construction next year, hard to believe with great difficulty.
