Virgin Hyperloop to build a hyperloop certification center

American transportation company Virgin Hyperloop announced its plans to build a hyperloop safety certification testing facility at West Virginia.

Virgin hopes the facility will play a crucial rule in the creation of a national hyperloop safety certification framework for the U.S, a process that will require direct involvement of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). Fortunately for Hyperloop, the DOT has already taken the first step through the issuance of guidance documentation in advance of a framework in July of this year.

So far, the company has been developing its hyperloop technology at its proving ground in North Las Vegas. The new facility will be used specifically for certification but will involve similar large-scale testing. 

Virgin hopes to fully safety certify its hyperloop system by 2025, followed by commercial operation by 2030.
