Generates large amounts of Power but can only be built on Slag Deposits. Knocks back nearby units when destroyed. Data version: 1.2.0

The Thermo Power Generator is a more powerful version of the Plasma Generator, available to the Sisters of Battle in Dawn of War: Soulstorm.


  • Generates the Power resource at a high rate than Plasma Generators.
  • Can only be built on top of Slag Deposits.
  • Thermo Plasma Generators are volatile and will knock back anything nearby when they are destroyed.
  • Projects a Control Area around itself, allowing other buildings to be built near it.


The Thermo Plasma Generator produces 40 Power, and also instantly provides 100 Power when it has finished construction. This makes it very powerful on maps that have Slag Deposits. Unless there are Slag Deposits in your own base, they will often be constantly fought over. Because of this, it is very important to build a couple Inferno Turrets of Purgatus Mine Fields.

Remember: the Thermo Plasma Generator gives off a Control Area. Although it is rather small, this allows you to place forward bases. You could construct an Adepta Sororitas Convent next to the generator so that you can either produce units to defend the generator right away, or produce units that will reach the battle quicker than the others. To better defend the Thermo Plasma Generator, it is rather useful to construct the cheap Holy Reliquary right next to the generator. This way, you can use Laud Hailer to delay and weaken any offending forces.

If combating a Thermo Plasma Generator with an army, it is best to let your ranged forces take care of the generator. Any melee units attacking it will be sent flying once it is destroyed. It does no damage, but can greatly disrupt your forces. Besides, it is probably better to let your close combat units deal with any enemy units trying to defend the generator.

Thermo Plasma Generators are necessary in long games because they never decay. This means that they will constantly produce their large amounts of power, no matter how long they have been standing. This is often why Thermo Plasma Generators are constantly foguth over, especially in the late game. It is important to defend your powerful generator at all costs!
