European company developing the scalable hyperloop, an ultra high-speed mobility solution for transport of passengers and goods, Zeleros and ArcelorMittal has carried out trials to analyze the behavior of steel grades for optimal use in hyperloops. A testing facility in the form of a spinning wheel that can reach linear speeds of up to 500 kilometers per hour has been designed and built at ArcelorMittal’s Rail Excellence Centre in Spain, to test how certain steels perform in ultra-high-speed conditions, prior to testing on a scaled hyperloop track. The results provide data to further advance the selection of the best steels for hyperloop use, considering safety, energy efficiency, cost and scalability as the main decision criteria.Zeleros and ArcelorMittal have been working together since 2017. Since then, experts from both companies, including all ArcelorMittal’s R&D centres, have jointly developed studies to analyze the way in which materials behave in high-speed conditions, measuring the effects of key characteristics for hyperloop technology, such as the electromagnetic properties of steels as hyperloop designs propose the use of magnetic levitation.As part of the collaborative work between the two companies, ArcelorMittal’s rails business in Europe, ArcelorMittal Europe Long Products, Rails and Special Sections, has developed new products with improved guiding and braking performance, as part of the wider co-engineering project between Zeleros and ArcelorMittal. Besides hyperloop, ArcelorMittal has participated in studies of materials for other applications developed by Zeleros, such as the SELF (Sustainable Electric Freight-forwarder), conceived to move standard intermodal containers in a faster, automated and sustainable way within ports, for which the test track is currently under construction in the port of Sagunto in Spain. Likewise, the objective of Zeleros is to advance in the construction of mobility solutions that are sustainable and efficient like hyperloop and SELF, accompanied by partners with extensive industrial knowledge, as confirmed by the material studies carried out with ArcelorMittal.Zeleros is a European deep-tech company devoted to the design, development, manufacture and supply of hyperloop vehicles for intercity transportation for passengers and goods, traveling at a ground level and unprecedented speeds with zero direct emissions.
