Supply and Installation of Two Hydrogen-Powered Bicycles at the Premises of NCSR “DEMOKRITOS”


MES ENERGY S.A. undertook the supply and installation of two hydrogen-powered bicycles within the premises of the National Center for Scientific Research “DEMOKRITOS.” This initiative was executed as part of the research program “Development of research activities of the Institute of Nuclear and Radiological Sciences and Technology, Energy, and Safety, in the framework of the National Strategy for Research and Technology for smart specialization.”

It’s worth noting that MES ENERGY S.A. constructed the first Hydrogen Refuelling Station in Greece, located at the premises of NCSR “DEMOKRITOS.” This station serves as the exclusive refuelling point for these bicycles, while the process takes less than five seconds.

The hydrogen-powered bicycles feature adjustable seats and handlebars, a digital control screen displaying speed, distance, and travel duration, front and back LED lights with an automatic function, hydraulic disc brakes, selectable pre-set assistance levels, and a continuously variable transmission gearbox. The bicycles can travel a distance of over 100 km on a full tank of hydrogen fuel and can operate effectively in extreme temperature conditions.

This innovative endeavor not only promotes sustainable mobility but also enhances the overall cycling experience by providing instantaneous charging and notable assistance during uphill rides.


  • Sustainable mobility
  • Autonomy of over 100 km
