Tata Steel and POSCO Join Forces to Develop Innovative High-Speed Travel

The innovative steel concepts will be used to create a hyperloop – a tube big enough to carry a passenger or freight pod able to travel at more than 1000 km/h while using very little
energy. The giant steel tubes required for the hyperloop have numerous unique features compared with normal tubes. They need to allow the passenger or freight vehicle inside to travel in a lowpressure environment – where air is removed to reduce resistance and minimise energy usage – as well as retaining straightness over long distances. Tata Steel and POSCO will develop high quality steel grades tailored for use in these large diameter tubes – up to 3,5 m. www.tatasteeleurope.com
