TIMEPORT / High-Speed Maglev


The Timport-Concept is the draft of a maglev for high speed traffic, based on the HTSC-technology. Through the usage of superconductor oxide in railway vehicles on magnetized streches it is possible to let them securely float on track. It is a revolutionary system, with less technological complexity than currently used ones. In contrast, to the untouched process of conventional passenger traffic, the usage of this technology will be able to meet the future demand of a more flexible and quicker transport with a sustainable as well as efficient use of resources.
