It hasn’t taken long for Andrea Rossi to get back to posting on his site following last Friday’s demonstration. He said he was going to take a break to play tennis, but it was a pretty short one; he was online again on Saturday and is now back answering questions at a steady clip. Q & A’s now seem to be focused more on the commercialization side of the E-Cat, and there have been some interesting interchanges.
First, Rossi confirmed that the plant that was tested by Domenico Fioravanti on Friday has been taken away for delivery to the customer — showing that putting the whole thing in a shipping container was a smart idea.
When asked when the next sale would take place, Rossi answered, “done” — and said it was to a different customer than the first one. There was no indication of a second plant in the Bologna factory, so perhaps the sale was a purchase in advance of it being constructed, or maybe there’s another location where these units are being manufactured.
When asked how many units he was expecting to build in the first year, Rossi answered, “From 30 to 100 for the first year is what we are already ready to make, but we will get exponentially faster in time”, which means that production facilities must getting lined up to handle these orders. Rossi When asked where in the United States he will be working, and hiring people he listed Miami, FL; Manchester, NH; and Boston, MA. Rossi mentioned again that the industrial strength plants are ready for manufacturing, but there still is work to do to get authorization from government regulators for the small household units to be sold.
Rossi says he will back in the USA soon — “We gotta make jobs.”
UPDATE: Apparently it’s more than just a second plant that has been sold. Rossi was asked at the JONP whether he had sold 2 or more plants, and he answered, “more.” Also, asked if he could say who any of the other customers were he declined to do so saying, “I want not our Customers assailed by the puppetts moved by their puppetteers. Let the plant go to work, then they will reveal themselves automatically. Probably you did not understand that there is a war against us.”
