Fieldworks EHC started.

Reading time 1 minute
European Hyperloop Center
We have started the fieldworks with soil investigations for the European Hyperloop Center Phase A on the site of HUSA Logistics in Veendam (Groningen). We need to make sure the ground conditions are suitable for the hyperloop test track foundations.

The initial results look promising: The logistic center sees heavy-weight traffic on a daily basis, and so has a strong supporting top-layer. We expect shallow foundation will be sufficient on this location to support the test track. This means the test track foundations have limited impact on the location while meeting the required tolerances. Further design work is required to finalize the design and go ahead to the next stage.
