Hyperloop One plans to project Russians across Moscow
Hyperloop One, a Los Angeles-based startup working on making Elon Musk’s crazy-fast vacuum tube transportation blueprint a reality, has agreed to partner with the Summa Group and the Russian Government to build a Hyperloop in Moscow.
The Summa Group is a Russsian investment group with a large stake in infrastructure investments in the country including port logistics, engineering, construction, telecommunications and the oil and gas sectors.
Both the Russian government and the investment group see Hyperloop One as a crucial partner in exploring ways to connect Moscow’s roughly 16 million citizens to new forms of transportation. The Hyperloop promises to be able to shoot people from San Francisco to L.A. in less than 35 minutes and the startup would like to bring that same technology to Muscovites.
[...] the Hyperloop could significantly increase the speed at which citizens shoot from point A to B within the city and across the vast country.
But the development will also help push the country toward “an economically attractive alternative to the existing global logistics flows,” Summa Group founder Ziyavudin Magomedov said.
The startup will need Russia’s help to set in motion an initiative to deliver products at lightning speed across the Eurasian Economic Union and help catalyze China’s plan to create a “One Road” product delivery mechanism throughout the region and across the globe.
“Our longer term vision is to work with Russia to implement a transformative new Silk Road: a cargo Hyperloop that whisks freight containers from China to Europe in a day,” Hyperloop One co-founder Shervin Pishevar said.
