Hyperloop Transportation Technologies and TÜV SÜD Announce Publication of Industry First Complete Safety Guidelines
Hyperloop Transportation Technologies announced today the first ever completed certification guidelines for Hyperloop systems will now be available to the public. The guideline was published in collaboration with HyperloopTT by the internationally recognized TÜV SÜD Group, an industry leading testing, certification, auditing, and advisory services organization. As the European Commission and the United States call for sustainable transportation infrastructure projects, such as Hyperloop, to aid in economic recovery following the pandemic, this guideline paves the way for regulation and adoption. The original guideline was created in 2019 and was shared with governmental transportation and infrastructure organizations in the European Union and United States.
TÜV SÜD reviewed the Hazard Analysis and Risk Assessment (HARA) of the HyperloopTT system and used it as the basis for developing a guideline that defines the key safety requirements for the design, construction, and operation of these systems. The TÜV SÜD guideline took into consideration existing regulations and experience from rail, metro systems, cable cars, amusement rides, aviation, and the process industry, and aligned them to the specific requirements of Hyperloop technology.
Taking a holistic approach, the complete safety guideline defines a host of aspects including the core safety requirements for the transport capsules, the drive system, the environmental control and life support system (ECLSS), the tubes, and the evacuation procedure in case of emergency.
“Our generic guideline is our significant contribution to making an innovative technology like Hyperloop safe and reliable,” says Ferdinand Neuwieser, CEO TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH.
“This is a major milestone for the Hyperloop movement. We are prepared to build the safest form of transportation ever created by humankind,” said Andres De Leon, CEO HyperloopTT. “The work of our teams in collaboration with the experts at TÜV SÜD has created a solid foundation for leading the industry and positioning Hyperloop as an ideal safe and sustainable high speed infrastructure project for the near future.”
Today’s publication represents the full and complete set of safety guidelines. The guideline can be downloaded in PDF format from the TÜV SÜD website for a fee of EUR 1,000: www.tuvsud.com/hyperloop.
