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 new mode of transportation for large volumes of passengers and cargo. In the hyperloop, vehicles travel autonomously through a network of low-pressure tubes. The hyperloop network connects cities, countries, and even continents in short periods of time.

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.
