There should be plenty out in the steelyard, especially higher up and around buildings. I hear there's a supply plant in the northeast. Should be plenty of ingots in there, too.Everett

The supply plant is a location in the Fallout 3 add-on The Pitt, accessed from the steelyard.


The plant's pre-War management began to replace the workers with protectrons, initially claiming the robots would only be used for plant security.[1] When the workers were laid off despite the supervisor Tom McMullin's stalling efforts, they revolted.[2]

McMullin, suspecting this as soon as he heard the management order, tried to escape but was chased into a small room where he locked himself in.[2] When the new protectron workforce arrived, the robots proceeded to kill the human workers.[2]


Inside the plant, 18 steel ingots are found. In the locked office, there is a terminal. After reading McMullin's entries on the terminal, a friendly protectron will appear outside of the previously locked door. The protectron is friendly towards the player character and helps assist in clearing the plant area of trogs.

A pair of wildmen are found in the second room of the supply plant, just past the main entrance. There are more wildmen further in by the carts fighting trogs. There is also a factory protectron inside a repair chamber that can be activated by hacking a nearby average terminal. A pitching machine and bases have been set up as a makeshift baseball field in the room containing the Man Opener.

Notable loot

  • The Man Opener, a unique auto axe, on the top floor of the plant on a large double bed.
  • 12 doses of Jet in the room with the Man Opener. Two units are on the table in the hall at the top of the stairs before entering, and 10 more in the actual room (one on the mattress, one on the floor by the bed, three on the shelf by the first aid kit, two by the skeleton on the left path, and three by the skeleton on the right path).
  • 18 steel ingots, locations as followed:
Image Qty Location
FO3 Ingottem 13.jpg 3 In the second room there are three ingots on the ground.
FO3 Ingottem 2 9.jpg 8 On the lower level of the factory, at the end of the tracks, either ingots are found in an overturned mine cart near a dead wildman.
FO3 Ingottem 11.jpg 4 or 6 In an Average locked room, the door surrounded by bobby pin boxes and skeletons, the ingots are located on the shelf and floor.
FO3 Ingottem 12.jpg 2 Two may instead be located in an overturned mine cart in a northwestern hallway.

  • Activating the switch at the 'end' that opens the shortcut back to the entrance will close after a period of time. Aiming at the switch through the door will activate it.
  • Sleeping in the bed next to the tripwire will activate the explosion even if the tripwire has been deactivated.
  • After reading through the last log on the terminal, in which it is described how the sound of the "killer" protectron walking was heard, a protectron will walk around the corner and by the door of the supply closet. This only occurs if the maintenance subroutine is run.


The supply plant appears only in the Fallout 3 add-on The Pitt.
