aluNID to become part of Hyperloop Pod Competition
aluNID® has become to a collaboration agreement with Valencia’s Polytechnic University to build an Hyperloop,that is currently being developed in USA. It is a mode of passenger and freight transportation that would propel a pod-like vehicle through a reduced-pressure tube that could potentially exceed airliner speeds. This high speed transport offers protection from weather conditions, safe from collisions, low consumption and accumulation of energy. For example, Hyperloop may connect Madrid with Tangier in only 42 min, reaching a speed of 1200 km/h. It’s a new and unique way of transportation.
Valencia’s University has been one of the 300 classified all over the world to take part of Hyperloop’s Pod Competition by SpaceX, where they are manufacturing a prototype that will be exhibited by the end of August in California, with the American Purdue University. The high qualities of our aluminium honeycomb core, its stiffness and lightness makes aluNID perfect for the manufacture of the first Spanish Hyperloop’s chassis, that will be shown in California.
