Cleveland-Chicago Hyperloop Line Receives Feasibility Study
Hyperloop Transportation Technologies announced that it entered into an agreement with an Ohio-based agency to launch the company’s first hyperloop project in the U.S., connecting Chicago and Cleveland.
This agreement makes it easier to carry out a regional feasibility study, together with the Illinois Department of Transportation. Several routes have been mapped out for the Hyperloop service, which would operate a super high-speed system for accommodating transport at over 700 miles per hour.
Pressurized capsules travelling along a frictionless magnetic cushion inside the tubes is how the hyperloop system’s operations are carried out. These capsules are powered by three important components namely, rechargeable batteries, a linear induction motor, and electromagnetic propulsion.
The capsules have a capacity to hold 28 to 40 passengers, and the system is expected to allow for capsule departures every 40 seconds. Thus, making it possible to move 164,000 passengers per day on each line.
“Regulations are the ultimate barrier for Hyperloop implementation and we are excited to build the first real public private partnership to bring Hyperloop travel to the U.S.,” said Dick Ahlborn, CEO of HTT.
