Nevomo, a deep-tech company that’s developing the next generation of high-speed railways is today announcing that it has received a €2.5M grant funding from the European Innovation Council (EIC) Accelerator Program, which is expected to be extended by an equity component of up to €15M from the EIC Fund.
Nevomo and duisport, the owner and operator of the port of Duisburg, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to explore the possibility of expanding duisport’s capacity with MagRail technology within the port’s existing infrastructure.
Polish company Nevomo has completed the first section of what is slated to become the longest passive magnetic levitation test track in Europe for their MagRail technology. Earlier this month, a 700-metre section was installed near the southeastern city of Nowa Sarzyna, where testing is scheduled to commence this summer.
The Switzerland Pavilion presented a new technology that is set to enable the railways transition to hyperloop, using existing rail infrastructure that will allow the high-speed futuristic trains to be implemented in a more effective, cost-efficient way. Swiss-based Nevomo presented its MagRail technology – a hyperloop inspired magnetic-levitation railway system that makes use of existing tracks to allow both magnetic vehicles and traditional trains to operate on the same railway line interchangeably, which can subsequently be transformed into hyperloop.
Nevomo has completed the track renovation with concrete sleepers delivered by Plastwil & Group De Bonte at the Ciech Group facility, where the magrail technology company is currently constructing the longest passive magnetic levitation test track in Europe.
Picture this: the year is 2045. You’re standing on a platform in Berlin awaiting a sleek Hyperloop pod that will glide into the station to a noiseless halt and then deposit you in Paris an hour later, ready for your morning meeting.
Rail travel in Europe is back in demand, there’s no question about it. Flights across the continent are relatively short, no matter where you go, leading many to ask whether they’d be better off - environmentally and financially - moving around by train.
ITALIAN infrastructure manager Italian Rail Network (RFI) and Nevomo, Poland, have signed a year-long memorandum of understanding (MoU) to verify the technical and economic feasibility of superimposing MagRail technology on select existing conventional rail lines.
ITALY: The technical and economic feasibility of operating 550 km/h magnetic levitation vehicles on existing railway alignments in addition to conventional trains is to be studied by infrastucture manager RFI and Polish-Swiss maglev and hyperloop technology company Nevomo.
The longest passive magnetic levitation test facility in Europe will be built in Poland, with construction to begin this summer. MagRail technology company Nevomo has signed an agreement with Polish firm Ciech Sarzyna to lease land and infrastructure. This will allow Nevomo to build a full-scale 750m test track.
The magrail innovative technology may play an important role in railway investment projects and for the achievement of the European Green Deal objectives, a report prepared by Idom and Nevomo says.
Did you know that Polish startup ecosystem, with its 3000+ startups, 300+ coworking spaces, 130+ VCs, plenty of acceleration programmes and tech conferences, is one of the most developed in the CEE region?
Despite the pandemic, 2020 brought a lot of success in accelerating hyperloop technology. But, before hyperloop vehicles can gather speed, the possibility of using magnetic levitation on existing railway infrastructure is being explored.
