Full-scale hyperloop system

In 2017, HyperloopTT opened a European Hyperloop Research and Development Center at Aerospace Valley in Toulouse, France. The 32,300-square-foot facility hosts a full-scale hyperloop test track connected to a commercially viable vacuum system, as well as a full-scale passenger capsule fuselage.

Since 2018, tests have been underway at this facility to demonstrate the validity and performance of the HyperloopTT system and its components in the low-pressure environment of the tube.

Regulators from around the world are visiting the site to observe, learn about the technology, and contribute to the development of government safety and certification guidelines.
