Hvy Duty Beamdrill is a technology that can be researched at the Nova Crystal Proc Ctr in Tech Level 3. It costs 200 Food and 100 Carbon, and lets Nova gatherers work 15% faster. Beamdrill Mining must be researched before it becomes available.
This technology should usually be researched as soon as it's available, to ensure a good flow of Nova.
"This Tech Level 3 upgrade again increases the speed at which your workers mine nova crystals."
