Offshore pump/infobox The offshore pump is the only source of water. It is commonly used to provide steam to steam engines for power generation. The offshore pump itself requires no power to operate. (This is because, otherwise the game might fall into a serious deadlock: No coal, no electricity, no water...)

Each offshore pump will produce a flow of 60 units of water per second, this is equal to the consumption of 10 steam engines per second. Thus if you wish to supply water to more than 10 steam engines at full output, you will need to use 2 or more offshore pumps per pipe.

This is explained more in optimal ratios.
