Substation West is a room on Norion in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. It has a damaged counterpart elsewhere in the facility, Substation East.


Substation West consists of a small hallway with a turbine that serves as a power source for local security and air-circulation systems.

Samus must be careful in the Morph Ball tunnel as the air-circulation pistons could push her onto the hot floor.
