Checking out Finnish-made pilot desalination plant in Henties Bay. @SolarWaterSolut, @UniTurku and @unam_na worked together to bring this solar-powered plant to the coastal campus. The plant has the capacity to desalinate about 30 000 litres of ocean water per day.

Kulisseista voin kertoa, että melko tunkkaisen meriveden muuttaminen juotavaksi @SolarWaterSolut laitteella oli aika paljon helpompaa, kuin "keltaisen veden" tislaaminen juotavaksi "kotikonstein". Puhdas vesi ei ole millään tavalla itsestäänselvyys! #voikotätäsyödä https://twitter.com/SolarWaterSolut/status/1376802785547718661
