VariantsLow-Pressure Turbine

The Low-pressure Turbine II is a direct upgrade of the Low-Pressure Turbine machine. Compared to the Low-pressure Turbine, it can accept twice as much Steam Lo, generates twice as much Mechanical Power and has twice the Maintenance cost, but only requires 50% more Workers. It has the same footprint, has the same inputs/outputs, and the input/output locations line up exactly the same.

The Low-pressure Turbine II contains a shift which runs laterally through it with outputs on both ends. This shaft must be connected directly to a Power Generator (or variant thereof) to generate Electricity.
