Hyperlopp Transportation Technologies will implement a Hyperloop
system in China which will start with a 10km commercial agreement at Tongren, a prefecture-level city in eastern Guizhou Province. Hyperloop says the system will help connect the region to the rest of the world.
The project stems from an agreement with the tourist attraction investor Tongren Transportation & Tourism Investment.
HyperloopTT will provide the technology, engineering and equipment as well as work with the city’s government to establish the system’s route. Meanwhile, Tongren will manage the certification, regulatory framework and construction of the system.
Chen Shaorong, mayor of Tongren, says the project will accelerate the research and development of the country’s Hyperloop system and enhance the development of high-tech industry and equipment manufacturing industry in Guizhou Province.
