HTT, under the leadership of Gresta, is the first company to start development of Hyperloop. It is also the world’s most revolutionary transportation technology that will reinvent transportation to eliminate the barriers of distance and time. The futuristic Hyperloop is powered by levitating pods that will travel in near-vacuum tubes, allowing you to travel near the speed of Sound.
HTT arrived in Asia with the breaking news of a historic agreement in India to connect two cities via Hyperloop, transforming an hour long trip to only six minutes. Since then, HTT have signed deals with both China and South Korea. Just a month ago, news broke out that China and HTT are partnering to build the first Hyperloop System in China, Guizhou province. The deal marks a milestone in HTT’s pursuit to have Hyperloop play a bigger role in the Silk Road Economic Belt, connecting the region to the rest of the world.
HTT is also making moves in Southeast Asia – last year, HTT and Indonesian investors signed a feasibility study agreement valued 2.5 million USD. This agreement has an initial focus on Jakarta and is the first deal of its kind in the region. Will Singapore be next?
