About This File
Fresh water is not always available everywhere in the globe, so industrial processes were developed to use seawater and transform it into fresh water.
The most used one is called reverted osmosis, and it consists in pumping at high pressure the previously filtered seawater (in the green-coloured tanks in the plant are sand filters) through a set of membranes (inside the main building, visible at night that only allows H2O through it.
Doing that, we obtain fresh water and concentrated brime, that is later diffused into the sea. Fresh water is then re-ionized and pumped into the water system.
This process needs quite a lot of energy, and the plant has a little power plant with 2 generators and 2 smokestacks.
The building comes with a 6x3 lot that must be placed on land and an overhanging jetty to be placed on water, so you can build beaches and another around the building.
Reminder: this building uses High Tech jobs, so be sure to have enough educated workers before plopping it
