Andhra Pradesh to get first Hyperloop Train

Hyperloop Transportation System, which boasts of being the most advanced and one of the fastest Transportation Systems in the world, is going to start its work in the state of Andhra Pradesh. This will be set-up for Anantapur-Amaravati-Vijayawada-Visakhapatnam route, as part of 700-800 km long Integrated Public Transit System.
Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, which is a US-based firm, recently submitted a study showcasing pre-feasibility routes for the Hyperloop System in front of the Andhra Pradesh Capital Region Development Authority (APCRDA) and other state nodal agencies. Various government officials and Bibop Gresta, the Chairman and Co-founder of Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, attended the meeting.
Hyperloop Transportation System, the brain-child of the Tesla Motors’ CEO and SpaceX Founder Elon Musk, is probably the most advanced of the available transportation technologies. In this, a pod-like vehicle is propelled inside a near-vacuum tube at a very high speed of around 1100 km per hour. This can easily challenge the speed of aircraft.
The Hyperloop TT System project in Andhra Pradesh is divided into three phases. Phase 1 & 2 will comprise the Commercial Hyperloop TT System between Amaravati and Vijayawada. And in Phase 3, the remaining portion of the Anantapur-Amaravati-Vijayawada-Visakhapatnam route will be constructed. Phase 2 and 3 are interchangeable and can be implemented simultaneously. Also, there is also a proposal to set-up a manufacturing complex for making tubes, capsules, track and 3D printing. The project will be completed under the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model.


According to Bibop Gresta, their Hyperloop technology is better than the other available ones. He claims that their technology uses a combination of renewable energy to generate more electricity than it consumes. This makes the system more affordable in terms of construction and maintenance. The capsules move at very high speeds, consuming very little energy and eventually making the system highly efficient.
