First Mode exists to clean up the industries that create, move, and transform the materials we all use every day.

First Mode helps governments, companies, and individuals identify and replace equipment that generates greenhouse gas emissions in the most extreme environments. Our nuGen™ technology is a turning point for global carbon reduction.


We build creative, clean energy solutions for heavy industry’s toughest problems.

We know that if the push for sustainability is going to have a real impact, we’re going to need to go big. How big? Well, we thought we’d start by powering a colossal mining truck with hydrogen fuel cells and go from there — and it worked.

Meet nuGen™, our end-to-end, carbon-reducing haulage solution, which will accelerate the mining industry’s transition to clean energy. One mining truck in South Africa is only the beginning. We offer a range of products that help heavy industry companies massively reduce their carbon output.

We designed and built the world’s largest hydrogen-powered haul truck. Learn more:

We’re hiring a Senior Software Engineer and more.
