The province of Groningen has won the pitch for the construction of the first European Hyperloop Center (EHC) which will also feature a 3-kilometer high-speed test track. With this, Groningen trumps the province of Zeeland, which was also in the race for the construction of the revolutionary hyperloop transport system.
The construction of the EHC will start in the autumn of 2020 and is expected to be completed in 2022. The hyperloop is seen as a promising transport technology that is faster and more energy-efficient than both the aircraft and the high-speed train. The EHC is therefore expected to become the European center of hyperloop.
