The Adeptus Mechanicus maintains a number of Arco-Refinery Platforms suspended in Theron's upper atmosphere which act as lightning conductors, storing massive amounts of electrical charge. At one point the planet was invaded by a force of Orks, with the greenskins attacking from a number of Roks that they had guided into the atmosphere. It was believed by the strategos of the Departmento Munitorum that the Orks wanted to capture the planet's arco-refineries so they could refuel and rearm before continuing corewards.[1]

The planet's PDF was bolstered by a local Imperial Navy battlegroup and a force of Space Marines — the Wolf Lord Kjarl Grimblood dispatched eight packs of Space Wolves from his Great Company to aid in defending the Platforms and they were joined by a Deathwatch Kill-Team led by Caius Vorens.[1]
