The 'Geothermal Generator uses the heat of Lava to generate EU. With the release of IC², Geothermal Generators accept both Lava Buckets and Lava Cells. The latter are stackable and thus require less maintenance, but cost Tin to produce.

Piping note: A Geothermal Generator can be supplied lava from ANY form of liquid piping, with the changes to the Forge Liquid Dictionary. That's right, not only Buildcraft Golden Waterproof piping, but also Redpower Hematic Tubes and Thermal Expansion Liquiducts!

A Geothermal Generator may be broken with a Stone Pickaxe or better to yield a Generator, but a Wrench is required to properly dismantle it to yield a Geothermal Generator. Either way you remove it, it will still lose all its internal storage of EU and lava (except lava cells/lava buckets).

As with all Generators, the lava-based fuel of choice is inserted into the lower slot, and optionally an RE Battery in the upper slot. The Geothermal Generator will charge the battery or output power at a rate of 20 EU/t.

A single Geothermal Generator can store 24 units of lava internally and another stack of 64 lava cells will wait in the inventory slot until needed or removed by player - thus, inserting a full stack of Lava Cells will instantly use up 24 of them and fill out the lava gauge. Unlike the furnace, the Geothermal Generator does not consume the bucket when a lava bucket is used as fuel. It is returned to your inventory.

Energy

EU
Input Lava
Output 32 EUp (20 EU/t)
Storage 480,000 (internal)

Internal Storage: 480,000 EU

Fuel Queue Storage: 1,280,000 EU

Total Storage: 1,760,00 EU

Input: Lava Buckets, Lava Cells, or placed next to a Pump

Output: 20,000 (10,000 for Experimental 2.3.224) EU per Lava Bucket or Lava Cell at a rate of 20 EU/t

Interactions with other mods

  • With the PowerConverters Mod, steam engines can burn lava buckets and transfer the power through an engine generator. The engine generators are expensive, and buckets of lava are complicated to deal with, but it would produce 50,000 EU per lava bucket as opposed to 20,000 EU.
  • If you have the BuildCraft mod installed, you can generate near infinite amounts of power. Simply connect one (or more) of these magical machines to a BuildCraft Pump pumping from a lava lake in the Nether.
  • If you have RedPower installed, you can also use the slightly more expensive but more powerful and less laggier RedPower Pump!

HAYO

Ge-o-ther-mal, doesn't that sound really good? Yeah, it does. And why? Because it's freakin awesome!

A Geothermal Generator works on the same basic principle as normal Generators do. But instead of wastefully burning stuff, these machines use the heat of pure Magma to provide a clean, yet powerful energy source. Just put a bucket of freshly gathered lava in, and watch your RE Batteries charge up! HAYO!


Attention: We take no responsibility for any physical damage customers may take in the process of filling Geothermal Generators with lava. That was specified in the waiver of liability you signed during your purchase.

You may not sue us for payment of ANY fire damage done to your housing, due to said stipulation in said waiver of liability.

History

Version Changes
Industrial Craft²
0.90 Geothermal Generators are re-released.
1.337 The output of a Geothermal Generator was buffed from 10 EU/t (in 10 EU-p) to 20 EU/t (in 20 EU-p).
Industrial Craft² (Upcoming)
Build #189 Geothermal Generators will output 32 EU-packets by default; however, their default EU output is still 20 EU/t.
