I am setting up a closed loop in Herron's Nebula but see that the Argon don't sell a 125MW shield factory.

Can I buy one from Great Reef and place it there or does it require Boron components?

Yeah, you have to buy the factory from the Boron. They require bofu, which requires biogas and energy cells so you'll have to ship a couple BioGas Factories and Bofu Chemical Labs over as well.

Unless my memory fails me here you need only one BoGas and one BoFu Fab to feed one Shield factory in X2. To minimise yellow blinking on your sector map you may want to place the fabs the following sequence:
1. BoGas Fab and feed it Ecells.
2. Bofu Lab and feed it Ecells and BoGas.
3. Shield Fac and feed it Ecells and Bofu - then add the ore.

Sorry for the late reply.
Light of Heart sells 125MW shield factory. I am setting up a loop in Presidents End - together with crystal and solar power plant. There is a good silicon asteroid in sector and a couple of ore asteroids in cloud base south east,

President's End? In X2? Isn't that just a little risky? Khaak Skull

Oh yes - but I have a Centaur on patrol with Dragon wingman (set to protect leader) - they cover Cloud Base South East, Presidents End, The Wall and Elanors Fortune.
When not in use any or all of the following sit in PE on patrol sector.
Osprey
Hercules
Orca

I tend to keep out of sector now as it is a little busy in there at times Smile

Some believe that lightning won't hit the same spot twice. Particularly, if they were so slow that they could not build juicy targets in the End before the first hit ...

In my experience, once the initial Kha'ak attack happens and gets cleaned up, it's no more dangerous than any other non-core sector other than the pirates that like to use it to enter Argon sectors. X2 being X2, it's pretty easy to lock down the east gate to keep the sector secure.

I find PE and Ore Belt to be a hot bed of Kha'ak - I have recently passed a point in the plot that in theory makes Ore Belt more accommodating - but I have yet to notice any decline in attacks....
My main problem at the moment is a Split M2 ship in Getsu Fune that has fallen out with all the Argon. I am seriously considering inviting the captain to a dual - my Osprey his M2... I need the solar power plant in that sector.
