Amaravati: India’s first Hyperloop transportation facility is likely to be introduced in Andhra Pradesh, connecting Vijayawada with upcoming state capital Amaravati. Currently, the state government is studying the feasibility of the project. If introduced, the 40 km distance between the two cities can be covered in just 6 minutes.

More Information:

  • The technology has the potential to transform the mass transportation system in the country, Bibop Gresta, Chairman & co-founder HTT (Hyperloop Transportation Technologies), said on the sidelines of the ongoing CII Partnership Summit.
  • Hyperloop, involves a futuristic & technology-intensive transportation system that propels a pod-like vehicle through a near-vacuum tube at nearly 1,100 kmph.
  • Last year in March, the Los Angeles-based company ‘Hyperloop One’ announced a proposal, to evaluate construction of 5 Hyperloop lines in India.

The 5 proposed lines include-

  1. Bengaluru to Chennai
  2. Mumbai to Chennai via Bengaluru
  3. Bengaluru to Thiruvananthapuram
  4. Mumbai to Delhi
  5. Mumbai to Kolkata

Faster & Efficient-

  • If the Hyperloop line is completed, people can travel from Bengaluru to Chennai in 20 minutes.
  • The 1,102 km Mumbai to Chennai via Bengaluru line will cover the distance in 50 minutes.
  • Their technology is radically different from the existing ones, Gresta claims.
  • He said,”Our system uses a combination of renewable energy to generate more electricity than it consumes. This ensures affordable cost of construction and maintenance. The capsule can move at a very high speed consuming very little energy, making the system highly efficient.”

Hyperloop In Andhra Pradesh-

  • Last year, the Andhra Pradesh Economic Development Board (AP-EDB) and US-based HTT (Hyperloop Transportation Technologies) had signed an MoU to introduce Hyperloop transportation facility between Vijayawada & Amaravati.
  • The government had announced that it will study the feasibility of the project.
  • Gresta said,”Once that is done and if the Chief Minister gives us the go-ahead, we will be ready to roll out the project.”
  • Gresta is confident that they can complete the project in 4 to 5 years.
