PESN Reports Brillouin Signs License Agreement with South Korean Company


Sterling Allan of PESN is reporting today that he has been told Brillouin Energy CEO Robert George that the company has has signed a ‘multi-million dollar’ licensing agreement with an unnamed South Korean company which plans to install Brillouin LENR boilers in a ‘stranded asset’ power station.

The South Korean company would engineer the boilers using Brillouin technology, and Brillouin hopes that manufacturing can begin towards the end of 2014. The projected cost for eventual electricity production is 2 cents per kilowatt hour.

    It is my strong hope that Brillouin is aware that if they place all their control software code as BIOS on their SOC control board, they will have a strong ability to preserve their IP.

    It is my understanding that with proper safeguards, encryption, and access keys (software/hardware), Brillouin can make it essentially impossible to hack their software IP. Their attorneys and SRI should be able to point them in the right direction.

      I disagree. All I know is, that it will take only a few hours to reverse engineer (hack) all the hardware and control software for an experienced engineer. Anyway an intelligent hacker or co. will not produce an exact copy, but will study the basic principle and build their own (possibly superior) reactor. This is the way its always done.
      However, it does not mean that Brillouin or DGT etc will be dead or will suffer huge losses, it simply means they lose monopoly and must compete. Its all good for everyone, because progress happens.

    Excellent, maybe 2014 will be the year of LENR. The more competitors the more likely a LENR device will hit the market soon as each competitor strives to be first, I am sure. The Brillouin boiler seems to have some advantages, as it does not run away and can easily be stopped and started, so they claim. On the other hand might Rossi’s E-cat be simpler and hotter. I hope to hear something concrete from Defkalion as well. Interesting times!

    Excellent news. The world may look very different by the end of 2014!

  • Sanjeev

    Any idea about the name?
    If I remember correctly, George did say in some interview that they will start with retrofitting existing power plants with their own tech. So this announcement is in line with that. They are very much in the game now.

    This is great news. It only assures open competition spreading in global market places preventing control from huge oil and utility companies as well as single governments. The more the merrier. Hopfully much security is employed in its contractural distribution.
