Zeleros will test the 'hyperloop' in the Port of Sagunto

Place a 100-meter test track to move goods in the port area and validate the technology.

The company Zeleros has presented its SELF project (Sustainable Electric Freight-forwarder) in the Port of Sagunto to develop its sustainable container movement system based on the hyperloop initiative that will have a test track located in the Sagunto complex.

The PAV Board of Directors approved the concession of land in the Port of Sagunto to be able to test this Zeleros prototype on a test track. "The Port - highlighted the president of the port authority, Aurelio Martínez - is at the service of Valencian and Spanish society, the port is not an end in itself, because that is why we are the most important port in Spain". SELF represents an opportunity to validate a solution that could increase the competitiveness of ports in a sustainable manner and ValenciaPort is open to innovative solutions that benefit logistics and decarbonisation.

Zeleros, the European company based in Valencia that leads the development of a hyperloop transport system, will build a prototype of its SELF (Sustainable Electric Freight-forwarder) autonomous container transport system in the Port of Sagunto. This technology will allow the technology company to advance in the development of its hyperloop system with an application aimed at decarbonising and automating container movements between terminals.

The CEO of Zeleros, David Pistoni, explained that "we use the linear motor of the Hyperloop system to apply it to the movement of goods within the port context. Thanks to this we can validate and improve these technologies, since we are going to place a 100-meter pilot in the port of Sagunto that allows us to move these containers within what would be port logistics".

The SELF system aims to accelerate the transition of ports and airports towards sustainability and automation. The system is made up of some vehicles (or bogies) guided and propelled by the rails where the linear motor is installed. This technology has been developed together with the Center for Energy, Environmental and Technological Research (CIEMAT).

This linear motor, 100% electric and can be operated in a fully automated manner, similar to the intralogistics systems that we can find in logistics warehouses, reducing emissions and improving the efficiency of port operations.
