Despite the fact that the corona pandemic still rules the world, the team still managed to travel to Valencia at the end of July for the European Hyperloop Week. They did this in grand fashion, as they took their 30-metre track with them! By demonstrating the entire system to the judges, they hoped to convince them why they should win. And with success: they won two of the six awards!
Besides the “Mechanical Award” (for the new hydraulic braking system) and the “Full-Scale Award” (for the Scalability Team’s efforts), the jury also rewarded the team with the “Jury’s Choice Award”. This is because the jury was very impressed with the efforts of this year’s Delft Hyperloop team.
Our laminating experts were happy to share their years of knowledge about ultra-strong, super lightweight composite products with the engineers of the future. Holland Composites is very proud that they have achieved such great results with their self-built pod.
