New Fulvio Fabiani E-Cat Photo

Thanks to Barbierir for posting about this Below is a picture taken from from Fulvio Fabian’s Facebook profile which looks like him standing in front of an E-Cat plant. This looks a little different from the photos we have seen in the 1 year test — although I suppose it could be a different angle.

Fabiani’s Facebook profile provides three titles:

Technical Director at E-Cat Project
CEO at USQL LLC Embedded Engineering
Consulente Progettista (Consulting Designer) at Leonardo Corp. (Miami-FL-USA)

There is a Facebook Page for E-Cat Project here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/E-Cat-Project/1612990762297031?pnref=lhc — the only information provided about it is that it is based in Raleigh, North Carolina.

I’m not sure how up to date Fabiani’s profile is, but he does post quite regularly on Facebook, so maybe this is a reflection of his latest activities.

Fulvio Fabiani

UPDATE: Thanks to tlp for posting the following comments and translations from Facebook

Some FF comments on his FB:
Sarebbe “io all’interno del reattore E-cat” durante il suo funzionamento
It would be “I inside the reactor E-cat” during its operation

Sono l’ing che ha progettato il sistema di alimentazione, controllo e sicurezza e ho supervisionato il suo funzionamento per più di un anno.
Are the engineer who designed the power system, control and safety and I supervised its operation for more than a year.

Vessela Nikolova: Concordo Fulvio😊

Il nobel è per Rossi… Sono sicuro che ci arriverà presto.
The Nobel is for Rossi … I’m sure there will come soon.

È un multi reattore che sfrutta un principio di fusione nucleare scoperto da Andrea Rossi. Senza radiazioni e senza scorie.
It is a multi reactor which uses a nuclear fusion principle discovered by Andrea Rossi. No radiation and no waste.

Dedico questa foto e un immenso grazie al Prof. Montenero, docente di elettrotecnica delle superiori che a forza di schiaffoni mi ha fatto capire le basi dell’elettrotecnica che oggi ancora mi aiutano nel mio lavoro. Grazie prof.
I dedicate this picture and a huge thank you to Prof. Montenero, a professor of electrical engineering superior that by dint of slaps made me realize apply the principles that still help me in my work. Thanks prof.

Si era acceso ma non emette radiazioni è questo uno dei punti a suo favore!!
It was turned on but does not emit radiation is one of the points in his favor !!

Barry West: You look good Fulvio !!! 😀😀. I was there too !!

    You’d lose weight, too, if you spent a year working in a sauna at 100.1C.

  • Barbierir

    I wonder if it is possible to design a control system without having a clue if the underlying device really works as claimed or not. I’m not saying this is what happened, just wondering if this is at all possible from a mere technical point of view? Let’s say Fabiani is not an expert in calorimetry, when he got hired he himself made some rough and wrong measurements and for the rest he just trusts Rossi and what other incompetent Leonardo tech guys say. Then he spends years designing ever more complex control systems that make the whole plant work and respond according to Rossi plans. While doing this he never realizes that output energy is equal or less than input energy. Is such scenario believable? Seriously??

      It is well documented, but mainly on “ShurRossidown” or “freeenergyscams”, There is a document there which lists his purchases. Even mentioned in one of the IH exponents in Skifferoll’s latest post.

      It looks like he may have purchased them for the workers, though,

    • Engineer48

      Fulvio Fabiani has worked for Rossi for a long time. That is not a secret. As I understand it, Fulvio was “loaned” to IH so he could work directly, engineer to engineer to assist the IH engineers in getting up to speed on the ECat as quickly as they could. IH paid Fulvio for his time & effort, so for a short time he “worked” for IH.

      This is all on the public record.

      Here is a 2012 photo to show their relationship:

      • Engineer48

        Here Fulvio makes it clear he is a consulting engineer and was consulting to IH & Leonardo at the same time.

        IH clearly knew and agreed to Fulvio doing consulting work for both IH & Leonardo.

        Nothing was hidden from IH, who engaged him to work in Raleigh and then in Miami.

    They don’t look like people who think the tech doesn’t work. IH’s story is riddled with holes.

  • Roberto Siquieros

    I tried to befriend Fulvio on Fb but he politely declined when I told him I was keen to hear more about his experiences with the e-cat. He said it was not possible because of the NDA. Seems like a nice, genuine guy. He did say that there wld be more news soon due to the legal case though.

    • Mats002

      Hi Roberto! Your avatar is not as scary as it used to be! The avatar have not changed, so how come?

    Note the gauge glass indicators on the reactors above Fulvio and to the left, which show the FB picture of him was taken basically where he is sitting in one photo but standing up in the other

  • psi2u2

    To me that looks like a fighting picture. Fabiani is like, ‘here it is, it is real, I helped build it, and you don’t even recognize this one ’cause its the next iteration.’

    Or something like that.

    The West photo seems to carry the same message.

    Very interesting developments.

  • Observer

    So, the 89 million dollar question is “Does Fulvio and Barry feel more loyalty to Rossi or to Darden?”

    It does not appear that they are still involved: “I was there too !!” (Past Tense)

    • Ged

      Well, I guess the plant is supposedly padlocked and sealed, so everyone got kicked out. I wonder what they are doing now, or if they are working on additional plants or entirely new things. Like, what’s that “CEO at USQL LLC” business all about? Consulting and design it seems?

      Would love to hear more from Barry West too.

      • Stephen

        They both look good. Nice to hear just a little of Barry West’s words too. Really great for us enthusiasts to see those pictures right now it give us hope.

      • Mats002

        I bet USQL have ONE customer in Europe. Travel is part of the mission.

        • Mats002

          And the abbrevation for ‘You Structured Query Language’ is a tribute to AR himself.

    • Engineer48

      Would suggest they both believed they were good engineers, excited to be involved in a very historic project. Also suggest they were very shocked when IH refused to pay the $89m owing to Rossi. Even worse when Weaver indirectly referred to them as less that trusted IH employees. So easy to throw people under a truck.

      Would seem, according to Weaver:

      Peron, the ERV, is not trusted by IH
      Fulvio, the engineer, is not trusted by IH.
      West, the engineer, is not trusted by IH.
      Rossi, the inventor, is not trusted by IH.
      The IH customer, who paid IH $350k for the heat, is not trusted by IH.

      And all it seems became untrusted AFTER the Rossi invoice for $89m hit the IH accounts payable in basket.

      I find that a bit strange or maybe convenient?

        Hi all

        IH said not to take notice of any others who pretended to post on their behalf. IMHO Dewey Weaver definitely falls into that category he has never been able to verify himself never mind his claimed links to IH.

        So I think it better to ignore his comments until he can come up with proof.

        So far it is only pictures like these and comments by involved parties, and documents presented to the court or the patent office that can be trusted

        Kind Regards walker

        • Mats002

          Hi Ian!

          That makes you not trusted.

          How does that make you feel?

          • https://www.facebook.com/app_scoped_user_id/100002656573372/ Ian Walker

            Hi all

            In reply to Mats002

            I speak only on my own behalf, I have never ever claimed to speak for others, I would never speak on behalf of IH or Rossi. I think those who claim to do so must furnish proof of their claims.

            Proof in the form of documentation submitted to courts or Patent Offices

            Reports on findings by those agreed as the persons to write said reports.

            Statements by primary sources, so Rossi/Leonardo or IH or one of its accredited employees. Though they remain statements unless attested and affirmed to in court documents.

            Anything else is opinion, requiring supporting documentation to uphold its contentions.

            You may note that when I speak on the Economic consequences apparent in those in power being more fully aware of the status of LENR than the rest of us, I always provide proof of the contention, usually from tens of sources and or from primary sources.

            My Hypothesis has always been that those in power are able to collect a quality of information that is not available to the masses and so will without exception use the advantage that gives to secure their position and money.

            That was what allowed us to predict the 2014 drop in value of oil back in 2013. Sifferkoll have focussed on the shorting of the Market, I concentrated on the asset positions of major players with fields likely to be affected by a working LENR reactor.

            Kind Regards walker.

        • psi2u2

          Good point. But he can make himself hard to ignore. That’s the problem.

        PeNon, the other guy was much less trustworthy, especially the wife…

        • Fedir Mykhaylov

          Peron also allocated money for research on nuclear fusion apparently without success …

      • Roland

        Gee, where have I heard this before?

        Another case of classic Freudian projection in full florid manifestation. Weaver is blaring an announcement to the entire planet that he is completely untrustworthy; all while remaining utterly oblivious to the door into his soul he’s opened so that any, all and sundry can view the twisty inner darkness. So unwise.

        Sun Tzu wouldn’t have approved of showing such weakness in the face of the enemy.

        Anyone surprised?

  • tlp

    That last pic is FFs reply to Barry West, so most probably taken by FF.
    Translations are by Google, so could be better.

    • Thomas Kaminski

      I find it interesting that the red and blue lights seem to indicate some sort of system control states. It is also interesting that there are six of them — also two sets of three green lights adding up to six. Could this be the machine that modifications to the contract referred to as “six”?

      • Engineer48

        Believe each box is a controller for a single 250kW ECat reactor slab.

        Each slab has 6 water pumps and I assume 6 long ECat reactors with 6 heaters. Is this what is referred to as the “6 Cylinder” design??

        Note below each red light is a 3 phase circuit breaker, which may be for heater power.

        There are 6 labeled single phase breakers associated with the blue lights (water pumps?) and 4 single phase labeled breakers associated with the green lights (control electronics?)

        As there are more green lights, may be another 2 unlabeled green lights.

        Plus more green lights, so this is just a 1st guess but most of the lights are associated with circuit breakers and so probably indicate the status of the circuit powered by the circuit breaker.

        • Thomas Kaminski

          I think you are correct — the breakers near the blue lights are labeled “BF1 to BF6”, probably for “Boiler Feed”.

          Either the red lights do not correspond to the three-phase breakers, or the first two breakers on the left were installed upside down.

          • Engineer48

            1st 2 left side 3 phase breakers are different manufacturer than the other 4.

            • Thomas Kaminski

              Boy, you have some sharp eyes. I could not discern that!

              • Engineer48

                Ditto for your sharp eyes to see only 2 of the 3 phases are being used.

                Maybe the 6 cylinder flat pack 250kWt ECat reactor heaters are wired delta and not Y to boost voltage & reduce wiring losses?

                • Thomas Kaminski

                  My guess is that it is wired as a delta — commercial power almost always provides 208-3Phase since line-to-neutral is 120 VAC. 208 would be close to the 220 Volt European distribution, allowing similar heaters as were used in Italy tests to be used.

                  Also, it is pretty easy to build a single phase switch to modulate the current into the heater. It could be a simple as a full-wave rectifier and a single IBGT switch. I have used this technique to modulate power to a water heater for solar thermal tests. I bought three 240 Volt “instant heaters” and wired one to each delta-connected phase, modulating them all “on-off” with simple isolated AC semiconductor switches.

                • Engineer48

                  My thoughts as well.

                  Hard to believe all this very custom hardware & the engineering hours to build it are a scam as IH seems to be claiming with their “unable to substantiate” statement.

                  I mean all the design engineers, product testers, build techs, installation & commission engineers, the ERV, the ride out engineers, the customer, Rossi, his US lawyer, Leonadro & the board ALL needed to be involved and lying if the plant really didn’t work. Not just once but also at the 1st test.

  • Ged

    That is a really interesting view of the plant (more details to gleen), and quite an amusing pic of West. Seems both of them were happy working there and with what they were experiencing.

    • Mats002

    What will all the red round tap like valves control?

    • GiveADogABone

      Normal practice with boiler gauge glasses is to fit isolator valves top and bottom, just in case a gauge glass gets broken. Gauge glasses also normally have a blow-down valve to check the boiler connections are not blocked. Blockages can lead to false gauge glass water levels with nasty consequences.

      • Engineer48

        You need the gauge to ensure the boiling water level inside the reactor is not too low (not enough wet stream production) nor too high (not enough fin area in the steam space to dry the wet steam to superheated.
