TO HYPERLOOP IN 3 STEPS

We have developed a unique technology for a magrail system - a passive magnetic levitation train operating on existing railway tracks at speeds up to 550 kph (340 mph). This hybrid solution allows for the functionality of both the magrail system and conventional trains on the same tracks. This can be subsequently transformed into a vacuum system, hyperrail, with a top speed of 1000 kph (620 mph) on existing tracks. Our last step - hyperloop will require new dedicated tracks. These new tracks will enable our vehicles to travel at up to 1,200 kph (746 mph).

Magnetic rail in Europe | MAGRAIL Demo | Nevomo (former Hyper Poland)

Link to promotional video on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZdLG7YxowA (Accessed 2021-04-28)
On October 22, 2019, a demonstration of magrail technology, a modern transport system developed by Nevomo, took place in Warsaw. During the demonstration, the ride of a magrail vehicle on the test track was shown. The 48- meter track was made in a 1:5 scale.
Magrail is a magnetic rail system that uses existing conventional rail transport corridors. Both conventional trains and magnetically levitating vehicles can use the same railway track interchangeably. The magrail system can be fully integrated with existing rail infrastructure without the need to make changes to the existing rolling stock.

Plastwil De Bonte becomes Nevomo’s Track Partner
15.06.2021

Nevomo has signed a cooperation agreement with Plastwil and Plastwil de Bonte, companies specializing in the production of top-quality pre-stressed concrete sleepers and rail fastening systems. The sleepers and fixings supplied by the two companies will be used to build a full-scale magrail technology test track. Thanks to this cooperation, Nevomo will build a 750-meter-long track which will be the longest track for passive magnetic levitation tests in Europe.

The Belgian company De Bonte has 30 years of experience in the manufacture of prestressed concrete sleepers, while Polish Plastwil has been a leading manufacturer of sleeper rail fastening systems for more than 35 years. Both the pre-stressed concrete sleepers and the fastening systems will become part of a full-scale test track for the magrail technology - a new generation of high-speed railways in which vehicles will travel at speeds of up to 550 kph. The track will be built in the Nowa Sarzyna commune in the Podkarpackie voivodship in Poland. Construction will begin in the second half of this year.

As part of the agreement, Plastwil De Bonte became Nevomo's Track Partner and joined a group of other companies that are currently supporting the development of the magnetic railway including IDOM, CIECH Sarzyna, Transfer Multisort Elektronik or the Railway Institute.

-The support of Plastwil, which has a rich and international experience as a leading manufacturer of rail technology components, is very important for us. Thanks to this, further steps towards full-scale testing of magrail technology will be possible. - says Lukasz Mielczarek, co-founder and Infrastructure Director at Nevomo.

– As an innovation-driven company, we draw from our many years of experience as a manufacturer of railway infrastructure components, and we are already thinking today about what would be required for railway development in the coming decades. The cooperation with Nevomo fits perfectly in our future vision, where we create railway solutions for the next 20, 30, or even 50 years ahead. I am convinced that in the context of reducing human impact on the environment, railways are going to become the preferred mode of transport, and the development of such technologies as hyperloop is bringing us closer to its revival - says Izabella Walkowska, CEO at Plastwil.

Rete Ferroviaria Italiana and Nevomo have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to verify the technical and economic feasibility of superposing magrail technology on existing railway infrastructures. As part of this cooperation, they will apply for European innovation funding, to finance a full-scale pilot on the RFI test facility in Bologna San Donato. It will be a major step towards bringing this innovative technology – still in its development phase – to the European railway market. It is expected that magrail will be compatible with the coexisting underlying railway system and will enable conventional and high-speed railway transport to be upgraded. There will follow an increase in speed of up to 75% regarding existing alignments, without the need to build new infrastructures. This will mean avoiding all heavy civil works and related investment.

Rete Ferroviaria Italiana, the Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane Group company responsible for managing the national railway infrastructure, and the Polish-Swiss technology company Nevomo, have signed an MoU to develop magrail technology. The year-long collaborative agreement is focused on knowledge sharing and analysing the Italian railway network to assess the technical and economic feasibility of implementing magrail technology on selected routes. The agreement also mentions technology acceleration, aimed at integrating it with the railway system.

In line with these activities, these two companies will apply for funding from the EU to conduct the first full-scale magrail system pilot on a test track in Bologna San Donato, which is owned by RFI. This will be the last stage of testing, which is expected to trigger the conformity assessment procedures needed to implement the magrail technology commercially. Thus, Italy has taken another step towards becoming a pioneer of advanced and innovative transport systems, focusing on related infrastructural needs.

Magrail is expected to become a new high-speed transport system superposed on, and integrated with, existing railway corridors. It will enable the introduction of a new mode of propulsion with linear motors and a new interface between newly designed vehicles and the infrastructure, based on frictionless magnetic levitation. From a technical point of view, it will allow for interchangeable operations of conventional railway rolling stock, as well as new, faster, magnetic-levitating vehicles on the same line. The latter vehicles will be up to 75% faster than the former vehicles on the same route alignment. The system is expected to improve the performance and efficiency of existing railway corridors at moderate capital expenditure levels and with lower operational costs.

[PL] Nevomo begins installation of MagRail on test track in Nowa Sarzyna

Post by Eurorapid »

Polish media report that Nevomo has completed the first stage of building Europe's longest passive magnetic levitation test track. The reports say that in the south-eastern part of Poland, on the area belonging to the Ciech Sarzyna company in the Podkarpackie voivodship, a railroad track of a length of approximately 700 metres was constructed in a construction standard allowing speeds of up to 160km/h to be reached. As the company emphasizes, the test track in Nowa Sarzyna will be used for testing magnetic levitation, functioning of the vehicle and infrastructure, functioning of power supply systems and cooperation of the vehicle with the infrastructure.

According to the media reprots, the installation of the infrastructure necessary for magnetic levitation began in March with the linear motor between the rails, the levitation-stabilizing raceway on the outer area of the rails and the power supply system. In the meantime, Nevomo is also assembling a prototype of the vehicle we want to levitate. Nevomo plans to start full testing as early as this summer. A partner in the project is Rete Ferroviaria Italiana, the Italian infrastructure manager.

The MagRail magnetic rail technology aims to significantly increase the efficiency of existing rail infrastructure. It is planned to operate both magnetic vehicles and conventional trains on the same lines without making any changes to the existing rolling stock. Thanks to the use of electric line drive, advanced automation and the phenomenon of magnetic levitation, rail vehicles are planned to run on the existing track infrastructure at designated speeds of up to 550 km/h. According to polish media news, the technology is expected to allow full automation of vehicle operation, increase their frequency, without the use of classical overhead electric traction and without the risk of error by operators with timetables adapted to the needs of passengers and changing passenger streams.

The track project claims to be b] co-financed by the European Union[/b] from the European Regional Development Fund under the Intelligent Development Programme. The project is implemented under the competition of the National Centre for Research and Development: Fast Track.

It may work in some countries but in Australia our existing rail is too bendy for speed and being a democracy there are too many NIMBYS to use straight guideways on the surface I think it is better to keep slow wheels on existing rail and straight tunnels with an overnight SC container train to reduce the daytime fare between big cities below planes.
