Hyperloop likely to roll out in India before UAE: DP World CEO

Hyperloop is likely to be rolled out first in India or Saudi Arabia before UAE, Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, CEO of DP World, has told the media.

Hyperloop is a high-speed mass transportation system for passengers and freight.

Speaking at the sideline of the Dubai Expo 2020, Sulayem said the high-speed transport system would become a reality in various parts of the globe at the end of this decade.

It will be seen either in India at first, or in Saudi Arabia at the moment. The aim is to achieve economies of scale, Sulayem said.

Hyperloop is described as a system of tubes or sealed tubes with low pressure of air through which a pod may travel substantially free of friction or air resistance.

In November last year, the company tested human travel in a hyperloop pod for the first time.

It's not decades, it's years, Sulayem told the media, where the company is presenting a full-scale Hyperloop pod.

The Hyperloop can shrink inventory movement timescales dramatically, decreasing finished goods inventory and cut required warehouse space and price by 25%, said DP World earlier.

Virgin Hyperloop One chairman Richard Branson had announced hyperloop system plans between Pune and Navi Mumbai in Maharashtra in February 2018. Those plans have stalled due to a Covid-19 outbreak.
