The Offshore Pump produces Water from a lake or ocean. It must be placed on a shoreline of a body of water on the map, and connected to a pipe or other object that accepts liquids (it does not require electricity or fuel). It produces 1200 units of water per second.

Offshore Pumps are frequently used to provide water for Steam engines, though several crafting recipes also require water. One offshore pump can generate enough water for 10 steam engines(0.14) (see the optimal ratios for power production). For the 0.15 release, an offshore pump can generate water for 20 boilers and 40 steam engines.

The water supply from an offshore pump is endless; it will not dry up the body of water it is attached to (to do that, use Landfills). Additionally, the size of the body of water the pump is connected to does not affect the rate of water generation.

History

  • 0.15.0:
    • Increased water output from 60 to 1200 units per second. (Undocumented)
  • 0.12.1:
    • Copy paste now works on pump.
  • 0.12.0:
    • Connectable to the circuit network.
  • 0.9.2:
    • Now specifies the liquid it will produce.
