Utilizes a large set of centrifuges to concentrate uranium-235 isotope out of natural Uranium (a process called isotope separation). The resulting product is fissile Uranium Pellets, ready to undergo a chain reaction in a Nuclear Reactor. The pellets are not radioactive yet and can be handled manually.

The Enrichment Plant is the sole machine which can produce Uranium Pellets for the creation of Uranium Rods and, eventually, nuclear power. It combines Yellow Cake from a Settling Tank with Hydrogen from either an Electrolyzer or Hydrogen Reformer. It takes 2 Enrichment Plants operating at a 90% duty cycle to feed one Nuclear Reactor continuously.
