HYPERLOOP ONE GLOBAL CHALLENGE

HYPERLOOP-ONE GLOBAL CHALLENGE – PRIMEX BY FUE

HYPERLOOP ONE GLOBAL CHALLENGE

26 people make up PrimeX HOGC, a team with which we are immersed in a global competition that challenges participants to submit an assessment and impact study on the implementation of Hyperloop technology on a specific route. The biggest challenge is to demonstrate its feasibility in economic, political and social terms.

We are one of the 35 semi-finalists from among 2,600 projects submitted to the competition, and we are competing against 34 team from 17 countries representing all the continents.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
OUR ADDED  VALUE

This project could mean reducing the time it takes to get from Madrid to Tangier, from four hours to one hour, and unite the old European continent with a continent full of new possibilities. Our team has received support and tutoring from the Ministry of Development, the Ministry of Environment and the Department of Transport, Property and Infrastructure of the Community of Madrid, the Moroccan Embassy and the Al Akhawayn University.

Along with other semi-finalists, our PrimeX HOGC team is exploring the details of the proposal with models, maps, interpretations, talks and videos, which are being reviewed by Hyperloop One’s transport, technology, economy and innovation experts.

OUR PROPOSAL

Our proposal is to take advantage of Hyperloop technology to unite two continents: Europe and Africa. The route would connect Madrid and Tangier in 1 hour. We aim to demonstrate how this revolutionary means of transport can boost a country’s economic growth and create new development opportunities.
