This seems to be an important update from Andrea Rossi posted on the JONP:
AND HERE IS AN UPDATE OF TODAY, JULY 8TH:
The past three days have been holidays for most, but for us have been a tremendous period of work during which we made a historic page for what concerns our tech: for the first time, an E-Cat module, entirely produced by our USA Partner in the new factory ( a magnificence), charged with the charge made by the Partner’s CEO, using the materials we teached to buy, prepare,manipulate, treat, to make the charges, assembled , insulated, has started its operation, and the results are the same of the E-Cats built by us. This event means that for the first time an E-Cat not built by me, not controlled by me and not charged by me, not tested in my factory, but manufactured from third parties upon our instructions and know how has worked properly. This is the first unit of the plant that will give to the factory of our USA Partner all its necessary thermal energy, and is also the school ship for the employees. It is very important that it has been completely made by the Customer, not by me: it is the first of millions, but the first is always special. We celebrated with Coca Cola ( alcohol is forbidden in that factory). All the former plants, even if built in the USA, had been supplied with reactors cores made by me, so this is a very important step.
It would seem from this report that this is a very important step. The partner now can apparently independently manufacture E-Cats without any input from Rossi. This news should help to calm the fears of those who wonder what might happen to the technology if Rossi is no longer with us. The instructions AR has provided seem to be good ones, and it will be very difficult now to snuff out this technology with all the necessary data secured with a corporation.
One interesting detail provided here is where Rossi says that the charge was “made by the partner’s CEO”, which implies that the CEO is personally involved in the manufacture of the E-Cat — perhaps the only person in the company who knows the secrets?
Also it’s interesting to see that the purpose of the first E-Cat is to provide heat for the factory where further E-Cats will be manufacured. That will be an important testbed for the technology. In a separate comment he says this heating will start this year. And, he says, millions more to come now — I wonder how long it will be before we find out where all this action is taking place.
