Proposal to link two cities via Hyperloop would travel 500 km last 28 minutes


The Hyperloop may be the future of public transport , carrying freight and people by steel tubes at high speeds. A proposal wants to use this idea to solve a challenge that endures for centuries: on neighboring nations Sweden and Finland.

The first feasibility study on a large scale wants to link the cities of Stockholm and Helsinki via Hyperloop. He was released by Hyperloop One, startup that recently held the first demonstration at full scale technology .

To travel between the two capitals, which are about 480 km away, the way is to go by plane, it takes about 3:30 a.m. to 1:00 flight time plus the time to get to the airport and go through all the procedures. There is also a night ferry between cities; the trip lasts 17:30.

Meanwhile, Hyperloop promises a path only 28 minutes – and he can carry load, not just people.

Connecting to Sweden to Finland is a perfect test to show the capabilities of Hyperloop because there is no high-speed trains between the two capitals: the time, the only feasible way to reduce the travel time is using a faster boat or a plane faster.

Working with two companies of the Baltic – FS Links and KPMG – the Hyperloop One shows the study that connect the two regions would be financially desirable:

The value of time saved by the network would be staggering EUR 321 million per year. The recipe for the complete system is estimated at 1 billion euros per year with an operating profit of 800 million euros, based on a forecast of 43 million passenger trips a year.

The tubes would be installed in ditches along the Baltic seabed, requiring little tunneling, which – according to Hyperloop One – will keep the relatively low costs, 19 billion euros.

There is a strong economic impact to build better transportation solutions that can shorten the travel time between cities, or join many cities in a mega-region, like what China is doing around Beijing .

This is also happening in other parts of the Baltic to overcome geographical inconveniences: it is the same reason that Sweden and Denmark are working to connect Malmo and Copenhagen in a mega-region called Øresund through infrastructure projects equally ambitious .
