Omeljan: Already fully prepared project proposal for Hyperloop


Minister of infrastructure Volodymyr Omelian said that he was glad to go down in history as one of the initiators of the appearance in Ukraine of Hyperloop technology. He said this on July 25 in the air “Gromadska”.

“I’m glad it the Hyperloop, in fact. Because for me it is much nicer to enter a mini – or quasistereo with Hyperloop than to enter a huckster or a clown. I think the first option better,” said the Minister.

According to him, the introduction of technology Ukraine had a “good pool” of companies.

“Foreign indeed develop this project. This Hyperloop Transportation Technologies. It is now a full project proposal, we have scientific assessment of the Ukrainian side and leaned on funding from the European Commission. Now waiting for a response. That is, the stages we have kept,” said Omeljan.

The Minister said that for him, the Hyperloop is “extremely important idea, because it’s not just some fantasy.”

“For me it’s important to Ukrainians to believe in themselves,” – said the Minister of infrastructure.

At the end of July 2018 Omeljan said tunnel high-speed transport Hyperloop may appear in Ukraine in 2023.
