The 1MW unit has gone and the next phase begins:
1. Is the 1MW container gone?
2. Have you started building another 1MW in another container?
3. Any improvements you want in version 2?
4. Will the buyer of the next 1MW container be the same customer or a different customer?
5. What city will you be working (hiring) in the US?
Dear Luke Mortensen:
3- yes. gaskets
5- Miami (Fl), Boston (Ma), Manchester (N.H.)
Gotta love answer 3.
Dear Dr. Rossi,
We, Turkish cold fusion team – in 1989, are interested in your E-Cat system and specially in the test results of 1 MW E-Cat unit. According to the first evaluation of your results on 28th October 2011, it seems that you are successful even if you get approximately the half of the suggested amount- 1MW- . But at this point, I have some questions to make the matter clear.
From the viewpoints of engineering and economics, as you know the evaluation of the efficiency of the system should be made overall. I mean,
1.What is the magnitude of the energy that is consumed for providing Ni/Catalyst system (probably including the supplement of electromagnetic wave) which is used in your process? This energy should be considered in the calculation of overall energy efficiency of the system if the amount of that energy is not negligible compared to energy input -as heat- to the unit at initial. This point can be very important if a special synthetic isotope of Nickel is used or formed in your process at initial and also if the activity life time /stability of Ni- Catalyst is low.
2.What is production/operation cost of Ni/Catalyst system and also what is it’s activity life time? And specially the cost of this catalyst on the base of it’s active life time (hydrogen cost can be neglected) should be taken into account for unit cost of energy output in your unit.
Thank you very much for your response in advance.

Dear Prof. Serdar S. Celebi:
1- About 200 Wh/MW
2- 1 Euro/MW
I’m not sure what he means here as the SI units appear mixed…[snip – see ETA below]
[ETA John Dlouhy points out the following in the comments section:
Admin, I don’t think Rossi was mixing units. I believe what Celebi was asking for was the embodied energy of the Nickel/catalyst preparation process, which he suspected might be high due to the isotope enrichment. Rossi answers ” About 200 Wh/MW”. I take that to mean 200 Wh(watt-hours) which is a measure of energy, is used to prepare one fuel charge for a 1 MW power reactor (which apparently lasts 6 months). 200 Wh is only 1/5 of a kilowatt-hour, an insignificant amount of energy if his response was correct.
This sounds more likely the true interpretation to me. Thanks, John]
We have already started the commercialization of the industrial plants. For the household E-Cats we have started the authorization process.
Paradoxically, it’s easier to get authorizations for a 1 MW plant than for a household unit.
There is a difference between experimentation and contractual tests.
The work is going on.
This was an assumption I made in an earlier post and hopefully answers some of our more incredulous readers who thought it would be impossible to get permissions. True, this is just a ‘Rossi Says’ but he is experienced in dealing with high energy units and I see no reason to doubt the above.<< Previous Post -- -- Next post >>
