Detecting alien materials and a massive local energy mass in the 1,000 megawatt range.

The Precursor Thermal Power Generator (PTPG) is the smallest of the four Precursor Bases. It can be found in the Inactive Lava Zone, within the Lava Castle. It was built around one thousand years ago.

The generator seems to be the source of power for most of the Precursor technology on the planet.

There are two locked doors inside the facility, both of which require only Purple Alien Artifacts to unlock. Behind the first door is the Blue Alien Artifact, which is used to access the Primary Containment Facility. Behind another door are three data terminals, one of which unlocks the Blueprints for the Ion Battery and Ion Power Cell. There is also an Ion Crystal Deposit located inside.

This system converts thermal energy to electric current at 90% efficiency. Some of this energy is chemically stored onsite, while unknown mechanisms appear to be transferring most of it to remote locations elsewhere on the planet:

30% Stored onsite for emergency use
30% Ground-to-air Quarantine Enforcement Platform
22% Primary Containment Facility
11% Disease-Research Facility
7% Self-Warping Quarantine Enforcer Units

The system appears to be fully automated and - given current understanding of the mechanisms involved - uninterruptible.
