Walkthrough

This section needs expansion.

The power station is under IRIS control. It's full of robots coming straight from automated assembly lines and other surprises such as toxic gas and cryogas in ventilation shafts.

  • Return to the second area, find assembly control room #2 through a door to the south east and descend into the utility section.
    • Find Utility Key, make your way through the spiders and crawlers.
      • If you have high enough perception/snooping, you can find a hidden trapdoor in the toxic storage room leading directly to the storage and skip most of this area. (11 perception required for the trapdoor in the toxic storage, but only 10 for the one in the storage room)
    • Find Utility Storage Keycard and head to the storage in southeast.
    • Grab Utility Keycard from the storage and head up into the main hall via the south western room.
  • In the main hall, head to the stairs in the north east. Find Senad Roberts' Office Keycard on this second floor.
    • You can exit the power station through the main doors at this point.
    • Return to the first area and find Power Control Room Keycard in the station manager's office (north west corner).
    • Head back to the main hall and take the elevator to the power management room.

Power Management console

Due to extensive damage and decades without maintenance, the powerplant produces less 10 MW out of its 300 MW capacity. Some power lines have also been damaged.

There isn't enough power to power up both Caerus Residential Block and Hollow Earth research complex at the same time, but both must be powered and visited at least once. An Electronics check can be made to increase the power output (140 required).
