When asked about what the next milestone for e-cat motor, Italian inventor Andrea Rossi said ““self sustained using self produced electricity = infinite energy: the dream of Tesla (and mine)”. Since he has been working with the Siemens turbine, Rossi has been very positive on his plan to take the LENR technology to the ultimate level – the production of unlimited electricity. Of course, it requires a huge amount of money. In fact, he revealed that $30 million is needed for an infinite COP plant producing 7.5 MW electrical power. The good thing is Siemens turbine allows efficient production of electricity at low steam temperatures.
The 45 MW e-cat motor, on the other hand, has also been talked about by Rossi recently. Here’s the following comments he stated on his blog:
Dear Dr Joseph Fine:
1- In a 45 MW plant, if Siemens gives us 30% of efficiency, the COP is not 6, is infinite: the energy to drive the resistances will be made by the E-Cat: if we make 45 thermal MWh/h, 15 electric MWh/h will be made, of which 7.5 will be consumed by the plant, 7.5 will be sold, together with30 thermal MWh/h.
2- The price of a 45 MW plant will be in the order of 30 millions.
3- The price of the energy made by our industrial plants will be made by the owners and by the market.
With regard to the 1 MW e-cat motor, Rossi has said that they are not capable to get a stable steam temperature of 260 C. The said temperature satisfied Rossi and as of the moment he has no plans to raise it. Clearly, the main priority of Rossi is to work around what is available right now. Moreover, the design of Rossi’s plant is dependent upon the size of the Siemen turbine.
