    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I saw on http://www.ecat.com the video of the demonstration of the Ecat QX in Stockholm: very convincing, perfect measurements.
    You turned a skeptic into a follower.
    All the best,
    Roy

    Dear Andrea, Will your production reactors be FCC and UL certified? or won’t that be necessary if you aren’t actually selling them? As I recall UL approval requires the factory/production line to be approved as well. At least it did for electronic products.

    Hello A. Rossi

    To ensure a delivery of 40 MW of constant heat to your customer would not it be interesting, both for you and for him, to install a higher power?
    So you could maintain without loss of power harmful to the operation of your customer.
    I wish you excellent results for your tests in progress
    All my support for your entire team
    Best regards

    Toussaint Francois:
    Thank you for your kind wishes. Yes, an extremely important test will be made at the end of August through the first 10 days of September. After that, strategic decisions will have to be made.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Our Customer is dealing with this issue. We have the necessary safety certification already done and all our plant’s components are certified. Locally certified engineers are dealing with specific licenses.

  • Dear Andrea,

    Whenever there is a high motivation of reaching some goal, there is a risk of overdoing. For example in the Mel Brooks movie “To be or not to be”, the main character is a professional actor who gets into a situation that he must enter local Gestapo office and credibly play a Nazi officer, for he and his companions to be saved (http://www.script-o-rama.com/movie_scripts/t/to-be-or-not-to-be-script.html):

    -Delighted to meet you.
    -What?
    -I’m rehearsing: “Delighted to meet you.”
    -You’re playing for our lives.
    -I’ll give my greatest performance.
    -Don’t. Just be good.

    Applied to the E-cat case: Don’t make the plant a magnificence, just make it good.

    Or (attributed to Voltaire): “Better is the enemy of good.”

    It sounds blunt and unfair, but it’s general advice whose rationale becomes clear after thinking about it.

    Good Regards, /pekka

    Dear Andrea,

    Do you already have all the necessary authorizations to install and operate the 40 MW plant?

    Kind regards,

    Frank Acland

  • TOUSSAINT francois

    Dear Andrea Rossi

    I wish you a great success with this first 40 Mw plant, and there will be many more to come !
    Is there still an important test this august with the SK E-CAT ?

    Warm Regards

    He,he,he…Thomas Florek: what about a song “Rock and Troll”?
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • SMG

    Dear Andrea:
    The Rock and Troll band is very nervous. They are chiming around that your trove to sell heat, not plants is a trick to avoid third parties controls.
    Isn’t a customer a third party?
    Never mind!

    Dear Andrea,

    Will the 40 MW E-Cat plant you have been talking about be the first one you will build?

    Many thanks,

    Drew G.:
    Sorry, we will give this information only to the invited attendees, while to the public it will be communicated the day before the event.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  • Drew G.

    Dr. Rossi:

    Have you determined a location for the January demonstration of the Industrialized E-CAT. As much advance notice as possible concerning the location, date and time would be greatly appreciated so that attendees can avail themselves of economy prices for air travel and hotel reservations. Continued progress and success.

    Robert Dorr:
    Leonardo Corp will pay for the power consumed by the Ecat plants.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Robert Dorr

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    As your current reactors require a certain amount of grid power for initiation and control of the reactors, who will pay for that power, you as the owner of the equipment or the customer?

    Sincerely,

    Robert Dorr

  • Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Well, maybe!

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted ” Pure Art of technology and a window with the view of the sun of the future.”

    It sounds like a resonator cavity with a quartz window. The inside is likely polished aluminum because of its high reflectivity at hard UV wavelengths. The window is small in comparison to the rest of the reactor. The construction is not “boxy” but a beautiful, an elegant shape. Have we shared the same dream?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Roberta:
    Yes this week will be holiday.
    I wish a peaceful “Festa dell’Assunta” to our Italian Readers, albeit it cannot be “happy” after what happened in Genova yesterday.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Sam:
    Terrible, terrible, devastating. Unbelievable.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Will the 40 MW Ecat SK have the same conceptual structure of a gas turbine?
    Thanks if you can answer,
    Aleksander

  • Roberta

    Dear Andrea,
    Happy Ferragosto! I hope you are enjoying some day of holiday,
    Cheers

  • Andrea Rossi

    Abe Vincent:
    It will be a magnificence as I can see it inside my brain. Pure Art of technology and a window with the view of the sun of the future. My life has been also a series of failures and errors and resiliency, but if all the enormous work for which I spent my life will have as a result this plant, my life will have been worth to be spent.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    You have described an interesting pricing strategy. May I ask about a hypothetical example:

    A customer contracts with Leonardo to buy heat with a 5 year contract. They currently pay 100 for natural gas, and agree to pay 80 for E-Cat heat.

    Year 1-3: Natural gas is 100 in the marketplace, E-Cat heat is 80 (as agreed in the contract)
    Year 4: Natural gas is 120 in the marketplace, E-cat heat is ?
    Year 5: Natural gas is 90 in the marketplace, E-cat heat is ?

    Obviously this example is very simplified, thank you if you can answer.

    Kind regards,

    Frank Acland

  • Abe Vincent

    Dear Andrea, Your 40MW reactor will certainly be an impressive sight. 4000 SK10 reactors squeezed into 8 cubic meters! The connecting pipework will have to be well insulated – if just 1% of the heat leaks you will have 400kW of waste heat to dispose of. Could get toasty in there.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    1- yes
    2- no
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    When you say that the cost of E-Cat heat will be “indexed with the variation of the market price”, do you mean:

    1. That it will always be 20 per cent less expensive than whatever the customer would normally use (e.g. natural gas)?
    2. That if the price of (for example) natural gas rises, the cost of E-Cat heat will also rise?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  • Andrea Rossi

    P.E.:
    Interesting. I read the article, we are talking of nuclear fission plants, each rated 500 MW, that cost about 2.5 billion $ ( 5 million/MW ).
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    K7:
    True. In fact we are not going to deliver our plants where there are not good connections. Anyway, sooner or later any connection faults, therefore our Clients must have a backup and our system will reinstate the Ecat remote control asap automatically.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Giusy:
    “We all are ignorant. What is true is that we do not ignore the same things” ( Albert Einstein ).
    About your consideration, it is correct.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Robert Dorr:
    If our Customers now are spending 100, with the Ecat plants they will spend 80 and the price will be indexed with the variation of the market price, to maintain the 20% of earning for the Customer.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Giusy

    Dr Andrea,
    Sorry, I am ignorant of Physics: reading what the consultant of IH said, which is that LENR violate the first principle of thermodynamic, I tink that they are wrong, because the formula of Einstein E=mc2 makes LENR respect the first principle of thermodynamic. Am I correct?
    Giusy

  • K7

    In some areas of the globe the internet connection is very weak, therefore your strategy of remote control from the headquarters of Leonardo Corporation would become shaky.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Gennady:
    I prefer not to give numbers before the plants are in operation.
    It will be enough to make it convenient for the Client and for us.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Robert Dorr

    Dear DR. Rossi,

    Herta Hoster asked you how much the customer would save using your reactors instead of the customers current system and you indicated roughly 20%. It was a bit unclear to me if you meant that they would save 20% or that they would spend 20% of what they are currently spending. So if the customer is spending $100 for there current system would they now be spending $20 with your new reactors or would they be spending $80 with your new reactors? Sorry if this is redundant I just want to have a clear picture of the savings your reactors will provide. I am very excited that you are getting so close to the introduction of your of new power system.

    Sincerely,

    Robert Dorr

    Hello A. Rossi

    Do you have an opportunity to tell us what is the total power that you hope to install during the year 2019?
    All my support to your entire team.

  • Gennady

    Dear Andrea,

    Regarding my COP question. It would be interesting to know at least a range for QX and SK10 40 MW unit. Is the unit made up of QXs will have COP above 50, 100, 150, 200… ? And the same question about 40 MW plant made up of SK 10 units.

    Kind regards

    Gennady

    Frank Acland:
    1- yes
    2- maybe, but it is difficult

    Dear Andrea,

    You write that you are on track for a January presentation, which I very much look forward to. Does this mean:

    1. You expect to have production lines making E-Cats before the presentation?
    2. You expect to have at least one plant installed and working at a customer site before the presentation?

    Thank you,

    Frank Acland

  • Joseph Fine

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Today I saw in the Drexel University Research magazine EXEL an article about new Boride compounds that are useful at high temperatures.

    https://exelmagazine.org/article/building-a-better-boride/

    Perhaps these may be interesting in your work.

    Thermal regards,

    Joseph Fine
