Commercial hyperloop moves a step closer in Italy

Transportation and technology company HyperloopTT is forming a joint venture that could lead to the construction of the world’s first commercial hyperloop system in Italy.

It is collaborating with Italian-based industrial companies Webuild and Leonardo to study the feasibility of a hyperloop operating prototype named Hyper Transfer to carry cargo and passengers.

HyperloopTT reports that Hyper Transfer will aim to be the world’s first operational commercial hyperloop system connecting a section between Venice-Mestre and Padua in Italy.

In June of 2023, the consortium called Hyper Builders, won the successful bid on the tender issued by the Venetian Motorway Concession (CAV), Italy’s regional highway operator, which calls for a hyperloop prototype on a section between Venice-Mestre and Padua.
