Rossi in Interview Mentions Volvo Connection, SSM Duration (Andreas Moraitis)

The following post was made by Andreas Moraitis — thank you, Andreas!

Web TV interview with Rossi by Salvo Mandarà in Italian:

As far as I could follow, there are two new bits of information:

(18:25) SSM lasts ¾ of the time (18/24h).

(23:40) Some time ago Rossi said that he had spoken with a manager of a car manufacturer who told him that development and licensing of automotive applications would take a very long time. The news (at least for me) is that this manager was the CEO (amministratore delegato) of Volvo. Rossi has mentioned Volvo later on JoNP as one of the companies who are possibly looking into LENR.

    Thank you, everyone, for your answers.

    “It sounds like very good news. Is it?” YES!

    Is it possible that living on the edge of the arctic circle predisposes you to have an open mind, especially when it comes to practical science?

      Or staying warm…

    I included only Swedish discoverers, not namers, or isolators:

    Lithium — Johan August Arfwedson — 1817
    Oxygen — Carl Wilhelm Scheele — 1772
    Aluminum — Jöns Jacob Berzelius — 1883
    Chlorine — Carl Wilhelm Scheele — 1774
    Scandium — Lars Fredrik Nilson — 1879
    Manganese — Torbern Olof Bergman — 1770
    Cobalt — Georg Brandt — 1732
    Nickel — Baron Axel Fredrik Cronstedt — 1751
    Selenium — Jöns Jacob Berzelius and Johan Gottlieb Gahn — 1817
    Molybdenum — Carl Wilhelm Scheele — 1778
    Barium — Carl Wilhelm Scheele — 1772
    Tantalum — Anders Gustaf Ekeberg — 1802
    Tungsten — Torbern Olof Bergman — 1781
    Lanthanum — Carl Gustaf Mosander — 1838
    Cerium — Jons Jacob Berzelius & Wilhelm Hisinger — 1803
    Terbium — Carl Gustaf Mosander — 1842
    Erbium — Carl Gustaf Mosander — 1842
    Thulium Per Teodor Cleve 1879
    Thorium Jöns Jacob Berzelius 1829

    19 elements out of about 117 from such a very small country. Also note that 3 elements
    were named after the same Swedish village, named Ytterby: Terbium, Erbium, and Yttrium. Yttrium was discovered by Johan Gadolin, a Finn.

      Apparently the functioning brains to population ratio in Sweden is much higher than…

    • Andreas Moraitis

      That’s why Carl-Oscar Gullström’s theory does not involve hydrogen – Cavendish and Lavoisier were not Swedes… 😉

  • Mark

    Volvo, eh? As an interesting side note, according to The Ocean X Team’s website, Volvo is sponsoring The Ocean X Team’s efforts to study that odd, Millennium-Falcon-looking anomaly that The Ocean X Team found a couple years back at the bottom of The Baltic Sea. I’ll understand if this post gets denied for being too far off-topic…

    • psi2u2

      It’s off topic in a nice way. I know nothing about that; I’m going to google now.

  • hempenearth

    It is in Self Sustain Mode for that many hours. Edit: that is no external input for 3/4 of the time. Yes good news

    • psi2u2

      So now we need someone really smart in difficult math to calculate what that means for the Cops achieved — if the Lugano results were 3.2 without ever using SSM, what is the achieved Cop putting those two numbers together?

      • Facepalm

        If you take the numbers from the Lugano report (page 22), and the E-Cat is on 25% of the time, a COP of 3.2 would mean a COP of 12.4 if the self-sustained (on/off) mode is included.

        COP 3.6 = about 14.4 including the self-sustained (on/off) mode.

    • psi2u2

      It answers a pretty big question about the level of progress of Cop – if Rossi can truly sustain cops of 9-14 over these extended periods of time, then it is not surprising that oil prices are in free-fall.

  • artefact

    Rossi mentioned the SSM (3/4) some months ago. I tink at early 2014.

    • Ged

      I remember that too. Even years ago, I think, it was the same thereabouts to the low temp design.

    • Andreas Moraitis

      Obviously I’ve missed that – sorry. He also confirms the COP of 3.5 from the latest test, where SSM was not used. A value of 3.5 at ¼ of the time would mean that the overall COP is 14, or slightly below, since the control system will require some input. It seems that all the complaints about the seemingly ‘low’ COP have been pointless.

        Thank you for explaining it, Mr. Moraitis.
