Colobot Wiki

The power station is a building that extracts energy from the underground and recharges regular power cells through induction. To recharge a power cell loaded at the back of a bot, just move the bot to the center of the platform and wait a few seconds. A power cell being held by a grabber bot can also be recharged. Nuclear power cells are non-rechargeable.

A power station requires some energy in the subsoil. If the satellite report says that energy is available only at some places, you will need a sniffer bot to prospect the subsoil. The marks it lays down provide information about the specifics of its findings; a green cross means that there is an energy deposit at that location beneath the surface, which is indispensable for the construction of a power station or a power cell factory.

If the large power cell at the top of the station remains red after it has finished construction, that means there is no energy in the subsoil where it was built.


  • The astronaut cannot charge cells he is holding
  • Cells resting on the charging pad will not be refilled
