The first commercially available
electrically assisted bike
with a fuel cell (FC-Pedelec)
Pragma Industries has designed the first commercial-grade
fuel cell Pedelec, αlpha, integrating the OCS fuel cell
technology. αlpha has been developed as a response
of today’s energy demand and eco-mobility issues.
The fuel cell and hydrogen storage integrated inside Alpha2.0 delivers an unrivalled range of 100km on a single charge.
Whereas battery-powered Pedelecs are adversely affected by low temperatures, Alpha2.0 provides constant range and performances in every weather conditions. Equiped with a best-in-class H2 gauge, it accurately indicates the remaining energy to the user.
Compared to conventional electric bikes, αlpha is refilled with hydrogen in only 2 minutes using the filling station, while standard e-bikes take more 3 to 4 hours to be fully charged
- Electrical motor
- Motor power
Electrical assistance up to 250 W
- Top speed
Electrical assistance up to 25 km/h
- Fuel cell technology
150 W PEM fuel cell
- Bridging energy
150 Wh Li-Ion batteries
- H2 Storage
2 L compressed H2 gas cylinder
Pragma Industries’ partner Atawey has developed H2 Spring filling station for αlpha. It produces hydrogen from water and electricity (water electrolysis). The hydrogen is stored and compressed before being refilled into αlpha hydrogen tank.
The station is able to refill up to 35 bikes a day, only using water and electricity. The complete solution offered by Pragma Industries and Atawey allows increased mobility efficiency with zero CO2 emissions, from the hydrogen production to its consumption.
