The company is renting two large buildings near Antequera to set up a R+D centre for the Hyperloop, as part of a project which will create 250 direct jobs
For five years the two gigantic depots, which the Adif railway infrastructure company built in Bobadilla, near Antequera in inland Malaga province, have lying empty. They were originally built in preparation for the Antequera ‘railway loop’, but when that project was cancelled these buildings, which together cover over 19,000 square metres, were just abandoned. Now, thanks to an agreement which has just been signed between Adif and Virgin, they are to be used: as the first European development centre of the multinational’s Hyperloop supersonic train.
