The power storage racks are a processing system of some sort used by the Space Pirates in their mining operations in the Agon Wastes. They appear as a set of three transparent boxes attached to poles that can be raised or lowered through a system in the Bioenergy Production room. The racks are codenamed Alpha, Delta and Gamma, and have different Interface Modules that can be scanned to move them.
These racks play a role in a puzzle in the room. Samus is required to use them in order to progress, by moving the racks into a staircase shape so she can access the door to Ventilation Area B, which will ultimately lead to her fighting Dark Samus for the first time. A ledge opposite the room contains an Energy Tank; this can be obtained by resetting the racks in ascension from Alpha to Gamma.
On a later visit to the room, the racks may be set into another configuration. Samus can scan another console to reset them to the last recorded position.
A discipline report that can be scanned in the room reveals that two Pirates, Units 013 and 043, were caught playing with the racks and punished with a ration cut.
