3 extractors and 6 coal generators.
2 extractors and 5 coal generators. I am building the power plant at my oasis bar and bring all the coal there. While you're probably not ready for this at the moment, I would recommend preparing by having separate power lines from each section (feeding generators vs power from generators). You need at least 3 pipes delivering these 16 generators because they max out at 300m3/s. If the pressure is under 10, you have too many pumps, Well now that I have learned this I understand why so much of it has been a pain.
You can connect generators together at a pole, so you only need one wire to run power, connect them all and there's no limit to how much power they can transmit. After having issues trying to run 5 pumps to several generators, I tried your solution and it fixed my issue. A place to discuss the game by Coffee Stain Studios currently in Early Access. A subreddit for Satisfactory enthusiasts. I'm not get too far on new update, but if you put an water tank and buffers a bit higher than generators, it should create enough pressure to supply then. I built my coal plant on the ocean and I transport compacted coal across the map via belts to serve to the coal plants. I think I will need to redo some of my factories. Press J to jump to the feed. Bonus tip: the pumps push water, so they need to be at the base of a ramp to push the water uphill. You can barely power 3 power plants with 1 miner and 1 pump, basic belts and maybe a single power shard. So build your plant near the water source!
Do you run water and coal somewhere?
Trying to plan how to get my coal up and running but im unsure how much water i need. Was mostly about position and transportation of materials. Then, transport the coal using conveyor belts to the lakes. But essentially just go read the tooltips of the buildings, they will tell you how many things per minute they use, and how many per minute they produce.

Water needs to flow in both directions, or pressure will be a big issue. Build coal power plants right next to the lake. A place to discuss the game by Coffee Stain Studios currently in Early Access. Let’s say the player wants to set up 7 coal generators and they are all fully supplied with coal. This has far less restrictive rules about content than the dev's reddit for this game. All type of fuels and water consumption is proportionally reduced when the power usage is not at 100%.
I see coal behind hill near lake. Any advice would be great. Then it's just multiplication. If you have any more questions go watch u/imkibitz recent video on them. As for extractors each one has a flow of 120 and the coal generators have a input of 45. My thought is that if the water requirement for coal was reduced to 15 - 30 cubic meters or so, this would greatly simplify the the setup and allow between 4 - 8 generators per water pump.
Coal plant use maximum 45m3/min of water. When you get better poles, you can connect more machines. If only half of the power is being used, fuel and water lasts 2x as long.Coal Generators accept the following types of fuel. Both of the main lakes in Greenland can fit at least 6 water pumps (the bigger one can fit 8 if you get real optimal with it). This one gives 19GW net, and I'm just destroying the polymer. Plug the coal and water … Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. With that basic math done, 6 extractors can fit in most water area, you don't have to be on the ocean.

It may be because they're both pure, but I'm using 2 coal nodes to power 6 coal generators as well as my steel production. A second floor with coal generators and pumps to transport water up to the second floor. Cookies help us deliver our Services. Each siphon serves 2.5 coal plants, and I tend to cluster 12 of them (4 groups of 3 for perfect logistics; 900MW output). Im quite far from the ocean (without building highways over where my main base will be). Each siphon serves 2.5 coal plants, and I tend to cluster 12 of them (4 groups of 3 for perfect logistics; 900MW output). Does a generator use the same amount of coal as it was in update 2? Farther to the east is a place with coal and sulfur and oil all right next to each other so you can make turbo fuel.
