HYPER POLAND is the Polish winner of Green Category

Country: Poland

Category: Green

Project Aim: travelling is a necessity and an essential part of life. Transport models have become more complex and individualized. The solution developed by HYPER POLAND aim at revolutionizing transports of the 21th century – ultra fast, affordable and completely Green.


Hyper Poland is a multidisciplinary team of experts (engineers, architects, and business developers) working on the development of a new model of transport: a vacuum train called The Hyperloop. The goal of our startup is to create technical solutions, conditions and specifications for new technologies that are indispensable for launching the first line of Hyperloop in Europe.

What does HYPER POLAND do:

We want Poland and Europe to have their own contribution to the development of the foundations for this new technology, and to be one of the pioneers by constructing the first commercial Hyperloop line. To implement the whole Hyperloop system, new technologies are necessary that require new innovative ideas and solutions from many fields of science. They can be developed in Europe by European enterprises and scientific institutions.

Hyperloop combines the advantages of trains and aircrafts, and the same time eliminates the disadvantages of currently dominant means of transport. In a globalized world, transport of people and goods is fastly growing, but the current infrastructure is not able to meet the increasing demand for transport services. Both, passenger and freight hyperloop vehicles move in tubes with low vacuum conditions and thus can reach speeds of up to 1,200 km/h, while consuming up to 1.000 times less energy than in the normal atmospheric conditions at sea level. The vehicles will move without contact to the ground, using magnetic levitation and air bearings, accelerating and stopping using linear motor.

Power systems will include renewable sources, i.e. perovskite solar cells, and more efficient wind turbines (up to 50-60% of energy generated for hyperloop tubes) and will be integrated with dedicated energy storage systems via intelligent, partially al-based, energy management system that will optimize the power consumption. Autonomous pods will have real-time energy optimization of velocity profiles that will bring additional energy savings.

With its door-to-door approach, hyperloop serves the exact transport demand and therefore eliminates inefficient decelerations and accelerations for unnecessary stops. Hyperloop can be defined as an ultra-fast fully electric intercity metro for passengers and goods, which can contribute to a significant reduction of traffic with gasoline-powered passenger cars and trucks between cities and therefore have a positive impact on the environment. Furthermore, hyperloop will produce less noise pollution.
