In today’s post we give the floor to Juan Vicén, Cofounder and Communications Lead at Hyperloop UPV, who tells us first-hand about the experience of the team in the Hyperloop Pod Competition.
ISTOBAL sponsors the student team of the Polytechnic University of Valencia. Together with the University of Purdue (Indiana), the team is building a prototype for Hyperloop, the so-called fifth mode of transportation.
The UPV team has been selected from 300 universities around the world to participate in the Hyperloop Pod Competition organised by SpaceX.
As partners of Hyperloop UPV, ISTOBAL follows the steps of the students of Valencia Polytechnic University closely. The team competes with the best universities in the world in creating the train of the future.
The team is trying to find support from companies like ISTOBAL to turn a new supersonic means of transport fuelled by 100% renewable energy into a reality.
