The following comment was posted by Buck in this thread.
I just read the following exchange and was deeply surprised.
Rossi’s statement that an advanced design has now be developed for a stable 250kW output for a single E-Cat module is a Big Wow.
This is a far cry from 10kW units and suggests that mega-watt configurations will take far less space than a shipping container.
I am reminded that the Kockums V4-275R Stirling engine is rated at between 75 to 100 kW depending upon the source of information

I hope that all is well with you.
I understand that you have focused on smaller (10kW) modular e-cats in part for the redundancy and reliability that comes from smaller units. I was wondering if it were possible to build larger individual E-cats with higher power outputs. Can they go to 50KW or 100KW with the same level of reliability and control or do they stop scaling up at some point?
Thank you for taking the time to answer my question. I hope that they are letting you out of the plant every once and a while to get some air.

Yes, we arrived to modules of 250 kW quite reliable.
UPDATE: Another Set of questions and answers on the JONP about the 250kW E-Cat:
Q: Thank you for the update-a 250 KW E-cat sounds very interesting.  Are the 250KW reactors low or high temperature E-cats?  How big are they?  Do you believe that there will be more favorable economics for the larger E-Cats because fixed costs like the controls, etc, are spread over a larger reactor?

1- low temperature
2- m 2 x 0.3 x 0.7
3- tests on course
