EuroTube

We provide testing infrastructure for high-speed vacuum transportation technology.

Ground transportation systems in vacuum allows to levitate passenger and cargo in so-called pods in near-vacuum tubes at speeds up to 1200 km/h both energy-efficiently and smoothly between major urban areas. Autonomously connecting European cities and megaregions within the hour (e.g. Paris-Berlin) will unlock opportunities of unimagined potential.

Offer

Test Track in Europe

Description
We are aiming to build vacuum transportation test track in Europe and to organise annual pod competitions.

EuroTube responds to the growing demand of teams that build vehicle prototypes for high-speed vacuum transportation – so-called pods – and industry stakeholders in need of such testing sites for their research and development in Europe. Various European university teams and young companies are developing pods without ideal testing environments for their vehicles because the necessary infrastructure is too expensive for them to build. With its leading partners EuroTube intends to meet their requirements with shared testing facilities at fair cost-covering prices and advances the joint technological development of the actual infrastructure through various non-proft, entrepreneurial and commercial stimulants.
