Hardt Hyperloop from Delft will receive 15 million euros from the European Commission for realizing plans for a super-fast transport system. According to the company, it is the first time that a hyperloop company has received financial support from Brussels.
Hardt was founded a few years ago by a group of students from TU Delft. He had won a competition organized by Space, the space company of Elon Musk. Hyperloop can best be achieved with pneumatic tubes that, according to Hard, make it possible to reach more than 1000 kilometers per hour.
Earlier Hardt had already received support from the Dutch government and the municipality of Groningen. In that municipality, the company wants to open a test center in 2023 where its own technology can be better displayed. Ultimately, the company hopes to set up a broad European hyperloop network, with both people and goods that can be transported quickly and CO2 neutrally.
