Port of Hamburg, Germany

HyperPort cargo solution

HyperloopTT developed a sustainable high-speed cargo and freight solution capable of increasing capacity and efficiency while decreasing pollution and congestion at ports worldwide. Developed in partnership with terminal operator Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA), the system will now go into certification design review.

Engineered to current industry standards, the HyperPort system is a plug-n-play solution for port operators capable of transporting containerized cargo hundreds of kilometers in minutes. The system can move 2,800 Twenty-foot Equivalent Units (TEUs) a day in an enclosed operating environment that eliminates at-grade crossings to increase reliability, efficiency and worker safety. Designed by award-winning firm Mormedi, HyperPort capsules can sustainably transport two 20-foot containers or one 40- or 45-foot standard or high cube container at airplane speeds.

The pre-commercialization ready technology, developed in collaboration with HHLA and engineering-firm CT Ingenieros, represents over 20,000 detailed engineering hours including conception, analytical models, calculations, trade-off studies, 3D models, overall design optimizations and integrations. HyperPort capsule, infrastructure and system components are undergoing optimization in preparation for commercial deployment.

A HyperPort VR demonstrator will be exclusively presented at ITS World Congress, the largest mobility exhibition in the world, in October 2021.
