The project previews to send them in caps within a tunnel low-pressure

The terminalista group German Hamsburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) and the American Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT), society that is developing to a system of transport of goods and passengers inside tubes low-pressure, has constituted joint venture with the scope to devise and successively to commercialize a system of transport to high speed of the container based on the innovative technology on which the American company is working.

Initially joint venture will construct a station of transfer near a terminal of the HHLA in the port of Amburgo in order to carry out of the tests and to develop a cap for the transport of contaner marine standards.

The system that is developing Hyperloop previews uses it of the technology of the magnetic levitation for the transport of caps in a tunnel that anticipates partial an air pocket, to speeds that can reach or exceed the thousand kilometers per hour. A system for the transport of people and goods is currently under construction to Toulouse, in France, and the first experimental transports are previewed for the next year.

"With the system of Hyperloop transport - the president of the German terminalista group has explained, Angela Titzrath - HHLA is pursuing the objective to develop an ulterior member of the solutions of efficient logistic mobility in Germany. As gateway face to the future, we want to use innovative approaches with the scope to contribute to alleviate the pressure on infrastructures of transport within and around the port of Amburgo and in order employing our terminals in way still more efficient".

"HHLA - it has commented the founder and managing director of the HTT, Dirk Ahlborn - has a long history of innovation. Years ago we spoke about vehicles to independent guide, of container enlivened in independent modality to Amburgo. Together we will develop a complete system, than it will not be concentrated alone on the speed and the efficiency, but that it will hold also account of the problems that the ports must face in the daily operativity".
