Marek Gutt-Mostowy is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Co-founder of EUROLOOP – company working on bringing the Hyperloop (Vacuum Train) concept to reality. The current focus of EUROLOOP lies on the short-distance cargo version of the technology, which distinguishes company from its competition.
Before working on Hyperloop, Marek was Controls and Mechanical Engineer at CERN for 5 years, where he worked on Noble Prize awarded experiment called ATLAS which is a part of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest machine. Marek was responsible for the design, testing and validation of the CO2 flexible, vacuum insulated transfer line for the ATLAS Internal Bi-layer Detector Cooling System successfully installed and operated since 2015. This early experience gave Marek confidence in feasibility of Hyperloop which resembles in many ways LHC, however, doesn’t push physics to its limits like LHC does. Currently EUROLOOP has an official collaboration with the Cooling Section at CERN for which Marek used to work.
Having finalised his work on the cooling systems for CO2 and Cryogenics Sections Marek worked on the ultra-precise alignment systems for Compact Linear Collider (CLIC), which is one of the potential successors of LHC. CLIC is planned to be almost twice as big as LHC, 48.4 km in length and it has stricter stabilisation requirements. Marek’s work focused on the development of algorithms responsible for automatic alignment to keep the whole accelerating structure within 10 microns in 200 meters sliding window.
Marek’s other works include product development of consumer products at Bang & Olufsen, Mobile Application Startup – Systematic, and other Web-oriented ventures since the age of 10.
