Sci-Tech Hyperloop: Mumbai to Pune in 35 minutes

Hyperloop: Mumbai to Pune in 35 minutes

Hyperloop systems are intended to move passengers and/or cargo at airline speeds at a fraction of the cost of air travel

Mumbai: The duration of your travel from Mumbai to Pune has just got reduced to less than 35 minutes. This was made possible by the Maharashtra government’s green signal to the Virgin Hyperloop One-DP World Consortium to be the Original Project Proponent (OPP) of the Pune-Mumbai project. This initiative will generate approximately $ 36 billion worth of jobs.

According to Virgin Hyperloop, the Maharashtra government is a big supporter of this technology. The company will bring the world’s first hyperloop project to India in the Mumbai-Pune stretch. Once this project has been completed, India will become the first country in the world outside the United States using the hyperloop passenger system. So far, its commercial launch in the world has not been done anywhere.

DP World (DPW) is the world’s global trade leader and is also India’s leading ports and logistics operator. DP will invest about $ 50 million to complete Phase 1 of the World Project.

CEO of Virgin Hyperloop One JW Walder says that the race to build the world’s first hyperloop transport system has already started, and what has been announced today, has made India the foremost in its hosting. It will be a big record. Also, this is a big step taken to spread the idea among the public.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said that Maharashtra would prepare the world’s first hyperloop transport system. He said the supply chain would start from Pune.

Maharashtra and India are leaders in the establishment of the necessary infrastructure. This is a moment of pride for our people, Fadnavis said.

This mode of transport will take less than 35 minutes to connect Central Pune and Mumbai. While it takes 3.5 hours to go from Pune to Mumbai by road.

Virgin Hyperloop says these projects will generate millions of new, high-tech jobs. In addition, Maharashtra will have the chance to get a hyperloop component and manufacturing opportunity and export it to the rest of the world.

Hyperloop systems are intended to move passengers and/or cargo at airline speeds at a fraction of the cost of air travel. This concept of transportation was first introduced by Elon Musk on 12 August 2013. The planned route runs from Los Angeles, California to Las Vegas, Nevada.

The original Hyperloop concept is proposed to use a linear electric motor to accelerate and decelerate an electromagnetically levitated pod through a low-pressure tube. The vehicle would glide silently for miles at speeds up to 760 mph (1223.1 km/h) with very low turbulence.
