Hyperloop One to Study Line from Dubai to Abu Dhabi

Hyperloop One to Study Line from Dubai to Abu Dhabi :An agreement with Hyperloop One was announced on 8 November 2016 to study a high speed intercity transportation system linking it to Abu Dhabi.

Hyperloop One is a United States company formed to explore Elon Musk’s Hyperloop concept. The Hyperloop high speed transportation system uses electric propulsion to accelerate capsules through a tube in a low pressure environment. The autonomous capsules levitate slightly above the track and glide at very high speed over long distances. They are capable of reaching a top speed of 1,300 km/h.

Travel time by Hyperloop between Dubai and Abu Dhabi would be only 12 minutes, compared with the current journey (just under two hours by car, without traffic).
A number of stations would be built throughout Dubai. Hyperloop officials showed several circular station models, including one to be built at the Emirates Towers.
Mattar al-Tayer, head of Dubai’s Roads & Transportation Agency (RTA) stated: “Dubai is a city that understands global change and seizes the opportunity to pioneer.”

In October 2016 Dubai had hosted a competition to design a Hyperloop track between Dubai and Fujairah. Port operator DP World has already signed an agreement with Hyperloop One to conduct a feasibility study for using the technology at Dubai’s Jebel Ali Port.
The Hyperloop team had managed to obtain an audience in October 2016 with Sheikh Mohammed, Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and ruler of Dubai, and with Sheikh Hamdan, Crown Prince of Dubai. The same team had also conducted a scouting mission in Abu Dhabi, looking for possible locations for future Hyperloop portals.
Hyperloop One CEO Rob Lloyd commented: ” We are now at a stage where, from a technological point of view, we could have a Hyperloop One system built in the UAE in the next five years. Our agreement with the RTA is the biggest step yet towards achieving this goal.”

Hyperloop One successfully tested its Hyperloop propulsion technology in 2016, in the Las Vegas desert.
