Peter Gluck details a new interview with Defkalion GT’s CTO, John Hadjichristos on his blog, here.
While he offers nothing to demonstrate they have anything of substance, there are a number of interesting additions to the story they tell. When asked about the company history, JH tells us that Rossi’s deal with Ampenergo was problematic in that it interfered with their rights to Canada. As an aside, he also says that the Ampenergo deal collapsed later, too. It is certainly curious to see no movement from that quarter (not even a site update) for months.
I treat anything the company says with caution until they do what they said they would do but there is enough story-telling meat in this interview that those looking for meta-data might find it interesting. If we ever get lucky in finding that the company has more than words to offer, this new ‘information’ could turn out useful.

In the mean time, Rossi signed a contract with Ampenergo that was in conflict with our contract. Ampenergo would act like us in US, but due to their contract with Rossi, for the whole American continent exclusively. Ampenergo published their relationship with Rossi on 25 of June 2011, that created us a huge problem: our Greek-Canadian share holders were basing their investment on our company under the hypothesis that we could distribute products to Canada also….
And on the discovery process:
What most people do not know is that we got very big help from what had been published already in CF/LENR literature. Most of the scientific announcements, including those of Rossi made in public, indicated us WHAT NOT TO TRY. On the other hand, a lot of positive indications and useful scientific knowledge related, had already been published in public domain from other fields such as plasma physics, astrophysics, chemistry, metallurgy, volcanism, new material science, nanotechnology etc.
And on the tech:
Very quickly we realized that the “thermal method”, as well all the “gas loading methods” were not giving us the expected results that could lead to an industrial prototype due to their very slow feedback. We designed then our R4 lab reactor where a more aggressive triggering method (plasma ignition or ion-bombardment as some people call it) was introduced.
