Hardt is Europe's hyperloop technology provider. We envision a world where you can go and be with everyone and everything you care about. A world where distance does not matter. Backed by an investment from the European Commission, Hardt is paving the way to certify hyperloop and realize the global hyperloop network.

Hyperloop is the next generation of zero-emission transport infrastructure needed to sustainably accommodate the growing transport demand without compromise. In the hyperloop, autonomous, magnetically guided vehicles travel through a network of low-pressure tubes. It provides a single transport solution for passengers and cargo on regional, national, and (inter)continental scales. Compared to road, rail, and aviation, it provides higher transport capacity while using less energy and space, with competitive implementation and operation costs.

Hardt is founding partner in the Hyperloop Development Program, a public-private partnership supported by the Dutch government with 25+ partners, including other hyperloop companies and research institutes. Hardt has demonstrated their full-scale hyperloop technology at low speeds and is now constructing the European Hyperloop Center, an open test and demonstration facility for hyperloop technology capable of demonstrating high-speed network operations, to help define an open interoperable hyperloop standard.
