Produced by 

The steam turbine consumes steam to create electric energy. It is usually used together with heat exchangers and a nuclear reactor.
While designed for the 500°C steam of a nuclear reactor, turbines can still be connected to boilers for use in conventional 165°C steam power. At this mode, the steam turbine acts equal to two separate steam engines, producing 1800 kW and consuming 60 steam/sec. However, actual power production is based on the temperature of the steam, not the building itself. This means that using a steam turbine is no more fuelefficient than using two steam engines. Unless saving space within a large build, it is not necessary to use the more costly turbines for boiler steam.
Power output
Each Steam turbine takes a maximum input of 60 units of 500°C steam per second and outputs 5.82MW of electricity; the 5.8MW listed on the tooltip is rounded.
 Heat exchanger heats 15°C water to 500°C steam;
 It takes 0.2 kJ of burner energy to raise 1 water 1°C;
 Steam is consumed by steam turbines at a rate of 60 units of water per second;
 (500°C  15°C) × 0.2 kJ × 60 units = 5820 kW, or 5.82 MW.
 On the other hand, the calculation for the Boilergenerated steam is: (165°C  15°C) × 0.2 kJ × 60 units = 1800 kW, or 1.8 MW.
