PICTURES: Winners of Dubai Hyperloop competition revealed



Dubai has been scoping out plans for a Hyperloop transport system for a while now, and the city is one step closer. Team Mobius were announced as the winners of the competition to design a prototype hyperloop travelling between Dubai and Fujairah in just 10 minutes.

The team, from French engineering company Systra, were competing with 6 shortlisted teams from around the world in Dubai’s Build Earth Live 2016, a 48-hour event which was held at Jumeirah Emirates Towers.

In a statement organisers said: “Mobius was ranked first among the finalists after the panel evaluated the projects from several perspectives, including their technical and economic aspects, as well as their actual ability to reinvent the high-speed transportation sector for passengers and cargo alike. The panel also evaluated the degree of safety and security that the projects provide, as well their efficiency and sustainability.
