What we do

Research & Development

We establish research projects with industry partners and universities to innovate cutting-edge solutions and breakthrough advancements.

Test Infrastructure

We respond to the rising demand of universities and companies for shared testing facilities and tracks in Europe to develop their own technologies and vehicles for this emerging industry.

Technology Transfer

We enable engineers and researchers to create new technology products and to found spin-off companies which form the backbone of the future of transportation.

Our vision

Vacuum Transportation will replace short to medium distance flights and reduce emissions by up to 95%

“EU emissions from international air transport are increasing faster [+7.3%, 2017] than from any other sector.“

Trains and Cars

Trains and autonomous vehicles ensure mobility within cities and over short distances to neighbouring areas.

0 km – 200 km

Vacuum Transportation

This new transportation system brings big cities closer together over medium distances and replaces short-haul flights.

200 km – 4000 km

Intercontinental Flights

The next generation of airplanes continues to connect continents over great distances.

more than 2000 km

The idea
Doré de Morsier founded Swissloop. Soon afterwards the discussions with the European teams about a possible test track in Central Europe began.
Alliance of Partners
We met with representatives from industry, universities and the public sector at the Federal Palace in Bern to launch EuroTube's activities.
Partnership with SBB
The Swiss Federal Railways join EuroTube as a development partner with their leading expertise in transportation infrastructures.
First drillings on test site
Geotechnical investigations for the 3 km long AlphaTube have been carried out at the site in Collombey-Muraz. Various soil samples have been taken.
