For other advanced power plants, see Advanced power plant.

Advanced power plants were a more developed, efficient method of providing power to military bases during Second World War, and were used by both the Allies and Soviets.


This large, high-yield structure handles the energy strains of some later, more power-intensive structures and defenses.

This large, high-yield structure handles the energy strains of some later, more power intensive structures and defenses.

In red alert 2 the allies stopped using them but the Soviets replace them with the nuclear reactor.

In Tiberian dawn GDI and nod uses them.

Game building

This power plant provides a large amount of power, a few of these are sufficient for a large base. Power output is directly related to the power plant's condition, so protect them during battles.

As advanced power plants generate 200 units of power for $500, they are more cost-efficient than standard power plants.

In the 0.09 beta version of Red Alert, the Advanced Power Plant has a cost of $700, equal to that of the Tiberian Dawn Advanced Power Plant. This made the Advanced Power Plant less cost-efficient than the basic Power Plant, while at the same demanding more build space.

Behind the scenes

It bears a strong resemblance to Battersea Power Station.
