Hyper Poland develops the next generation of High-Speed Railways (HSR), based on magnetic levitation, linear motor and autonomous control systems, which can be subsequently transformed into a vacuum version. It is the only company globally working on technology enabling a gradual implementation of Hyperloop-inspired solutions as an upgrade for the railway industry.
The company has developed a unique, patent-pending magrail technology, which allows modernizing existing conventional railway lines to a standard of passive magnetic railways, reaching a speed of 300 kph (186 mph) on normal lines and 415 kph (258 mph) on HSR lines. The magrail system allows keeping the functionality of conventional railways on a modernized line (railway operators can depreciate their existing rolling stock).
Magrail can be subsequently transformed into a vacuum system – hyperrail, reaching a speed of 600 kph (373 mph) on normal lines and 1000 kph (621 mph) on HSR lines.
The third generation is hyperloop – vacuum magnetic railways built within new transportation corridors for a top speed of 1200 kph (746 mph), using subsystems tested in the first two generations.
Our partners include LOT Polish Airlines, Warsaw University of Technology and the Railway Research Institute. The company has got an international Advisory Board, including: Dorota Raben, PhD - expert in logistics and former President of the Port of Gdansk Authority, Amos Ron - former Director General at the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure in Israel; and Vladas Lasas,PhD (also Hyper Poland’s early angel investor), who has co-founded Carbon War Room together with Sir Richard Branson.
We are now delivering our full-scale prototype which will be ready in 2021, which is financed from public grant and equity crowdfunding. We need now to find a suitable place for pilot implementation after we deliver the prototype.
