Fast Company covers how First Mode built a diesel-free engine that’s designed to be retrofitted onto pre-existing ultra-class haul trucks. Read the piece to learn how we retrofitted a colossal mining haul truck with a clean energy powerplant and why we’re not stopping at just one truck.
“The standard version of this truck also runs on a massive amount of diesel, with a single vehicle emitting as much climate pollution in a year as 700 cars. Around the world, thousands of these giant vehicles are in use. But a new retrofit can shrink a truck’s emissions to zero. First Mode, an engineering startup, has spent the last several months testing a prototype with the mining giant Anglo American, which now plans to roll out the technology in hundreds of other vehicles.”
