Our HQ & Hyperloop Experience Center Grand Opening


What a night! Yesterday, we were glad to host our valued partners, colleagues, and friends for a Grand Opening event for our new HQ and #Hyperloop Experience Center. We were honored to also have Mayor Aboutaleb of Rotterdam, who helped us to officially open with an exciting ribbon-cutting.

We kicked off the event with a compelling opening speech from Hardt CEO, Bertrand van Ee, where he shared the team's gratitude to all invitees in celebrating this milestone for not only Hardt, but all of the hyperloop ecosystem. Guests were also given some insight into the work that has been accomplished so far, along with what lies ahead. 


Esteemed Mayor Aboutaleb also opened the event with an inspiring speech about the importance of innovation and a warm welcome to the Rotterdam community. We were honored to have hosted him at the new office and look forward to further collaboration with the City of Rotterdam.

After the opening speeches, we celebrated a ribbon-cutting with the Mayor and Hardt's four co-founders, Mars Geuze, Tim Houter, Sascha Lamme, and Marinus van der Meijs - with much enthusiasm from the crowd.


With the Experience Center officially opened, guests were invited for tours to experience the vision of hyperloop and learn more about the technologies currently in production. 

We are thankful for everyone's involvement and support to this point, and look forward to celebrating many more milestones with all our valued partners in the future.
