Thanks to ECW reader Chris, who provided me with a muchbetter translation than Google or Microsoft. For copyright reasons I can’t post the whole document, but his translations are in the excerpts quoted below.
The Italian news magazine Il Democratico has conducted an interview with Aldo Proia as a follow up to yesterday’s announcement that his company Prometeon s.r.l. would be the licensee for Leonardo Corp. in Italy and San Marino. A Google translated version of the article in English can be read here
Proia states in the interview that he will be involved initially in selling to industries in Italy, and that “currently a product is already available to order in Italy, which is the 1 MW thermal E-Cat”, and that the price of an E-Cat is priced ‘in part’ based on the savings the customer will realize its use compared to other energy sources. He doesn’t get much into the technical side of the E-Cat which he says is Rossi’s domain, but does mention that the thermal plants operates with heat output of around 120 C.
He also warns that people out there who make slanderous reports with the purpose of damaging his company (or Rossi’s) will be met with legal action and will be sued for damages.
Regarding the impact that E-Cat technology will have on the current energy industry, Proia states:
“. .. that the various actors on the energy market shall have to come to terms with the existence of a sharply cheaper and cleaner way of producing thermal energy and, in a near future, also electric. A wise stance, if I were an electric company, would be to cooperate with who holds the know how or, alternatively, conduct basic research in the field. Many companies are springing up in the world concerned with LENR, the reactions which the E-Cat’s operation is due to, and a number of multinationals, having consulted the world’s leading LENR experts, are stepping into the field to avoid getting left out of the game. But when a product exists already on the market, what’s the point of taking the longer route?”
It’s interesting that in the interview, Aldo Proia is addressed as ‘Dr.’ — I am not sure of his academic credentials, but I would expect that an academic title like that would tend to give him a little more weight with those he deals with.
Again, I am trusting in computer translators for the meaning of this article — all and any corrections from Italian experts are welcome!
