Coal Power

v2.1.0
Author: Calen

These blueprints cover Power Generations 2, 3, and 4. Each generation has its own frame and channel blueprints. The frame serves as just that - a frame to install the channel blueprints, supplies the needed water & coal, and provides egress for any byproducts. The channel blueprint is one complete power channel that fits into its respective frame. Together they compromise the power plant. Each generation is set to take precedence in power production over the previous generation(s). That way, when you install a new generation's power plant, it will immediately take over handling power consumption. This provides a graceful transition and decommission process as you proceed through the generations. See each generation's details below.

Note: The generation 2 power plant comes with a Cooling Tower upgrade module.

Efficiency improves as you progress through the generations of coal power, as shown in the table below:

Consumption / Pollution Per Megawatt

Name Gen2 Gen2.1 Gen3 Gen4
Water 6 3 2 0.93
Coal 3.75 3.75 2.5 2
Air Pollution 3.75 3.75 2.5 0.53

Generation 2

The Gen2 frame has placement for up to 4 Gen2 channels. Each channel provides 8 MW of power for a combined output of 32 MW.
