Tesla Prime was a major weapons testing facility for the Adeptus Mechanicus.

Experimental weapons of truly devastating effect were stockpiled there prior to the world's evacuation ahead of Hive Fleet Leviathan. While the Mechanicum attempted to remove as much material as possible, some equipment proved too large, or too dangerous, to move and so was abandoned. Shortly after the last ship departed Tesla Prime, Ork Lootaz proceeded to raid whatever had been left. The explosions from their 'experiments' could easily be seen from space. By the time Leviathan finally arrived the Orks had managed to master many of their new toys, resulting in massive casualties on both sides and causing the conflict to spread to many nearby worlds. The resulting war proved to be extremely helpful to the Imperium, allowing them to fortify or reclaim many smaller strongholds against further incursions.[1]

The military forces that were evacuated from Tesla Prime were sent to bolster the defenses of the Forge World Gryphonne IV, before it too was invaded by Leviathan.[2]
