Here’s a comment from Andrea Rossi that I think deserves its own thread.
Yes, Leonardo Corp is very much powerful now. I can already say that the first 1 MW hot cat will go in operation within February 2013. It will not be a military application, therefore selected persons will be allowed to visit it. It will be installed in a big power production and distribution plant. This is the new. The plant is made in the USA.
An extremely important agreement has been signed after the tests of the Hot Cat, which are going on since June in the USA and in Italy. The details will be communicated only after the plant will have been working for enough time to be visitable, also to avoid clubs in the wheels.
That’s all I can say right now.
Note that he is here referring to the Hot Cat, not the low temperature E-Cat. Rossi has mentioned numerous times that one low temperature plant will be installed at a non-military location somewhere — in Italy as I understand it — so this is apparently a different istallation.
Rossi says that this plant is ‘made’ in the USA, not that it will be installed there. If a 1 MW Hot-Cat unit can be made as compact as he says (about the size of an oil barrel) it should not be a problem to transport it anywhere in the world.
