PM Narendra Modi plans for hyperloop system
By MEHER ONISA : 01-Mar-2017
NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is proactive in bringing about attractive transformation in the travel and transport industry. He has initiated parallel talks with Hyperloop Transportation and Technologies, HTT to discuss major prospects in the construction of India’s hyper active hyperloop route mechanism. The suggested Indian route from Delhi to Mumbai through Jaipur and Indore can cover 1,317 km in just 55 minutes flat at the cheapest price model as similar to the bus ticket.
The Hyperloop system is a proposed mode of transportation that would propel the passengers and the freight with very high-speed at the determined time. This system resembles the pod and travels with the highest speed more than the speed of the normal airplane. The super-fast transportation system is the brainchild of Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla Motors and SpaceX.
A number of routes have been proposed by PM Modi for Hyperloop systems to meet the approximate distance at the shortest hypothesized period. The Indian Summit had formed a panel of 5 semi-finalist teams to govern the Hyperloop One Global Challenge (HOGC). The high-speed transportation routes would imperatively change the lives of millions of Indians.
The Panel of 5 Indian Semi-finalists Includes:
AECOM: Bengaluru to Chennai: To cover 334 Km in 20 minutes
LUX Hyperloop Network: Bengaluru to Thiruvananthapuram: To covers 736 km in 41 minutes while connecting to the biggest southern India’s ports including Coimbatore and Kochi.
Dinclix GroundWorks: Delhi to Mumbai through Jaipur and Indore: To cover a maximum speed of 1,317 km in 55 minutes. To connect and interlink 2 metro cities and gives seaport access for the landlocked cities within the country.
Hyperloop India: Mumbai to Chennai via Bengaluru: To cover 1,102 km in 50 minutes. This hyperloop will create a Suez Canal-like link between India’s coasts.
Infi-Alpha: Bengaluru to Chennai: To take the passengers and freight to a distance of 334 km in 20 minutes. This provides connectivity to all the big airports.
