The eagerly anticipated tests on 28th October in Bologna, Italy will hopefully be a breakthrough in the development of the E-Cat concept. The inconvenience about it is that the public might not necessarily be informed directly about the device.
The large public will find details about the event from a report published after the test and skeptics consider this move as another evidence of the device being a fraud. Others, on the other hand, consider the decision a rational one.
Rossi informed that this will be the last public test, by public meaning a test whose results and numbers are published in a report available to the public.
The Italian engineer mentioned that after this test, he will focus on producing, testing and improving the E-Cat for the customer.
The research and development work will be carried on by the universities of Bologna and Uppsala, but the results will no longer be made public.
Not even the 28th October will be a typical public test, as the operations will be conducted by customer’s experts and will follow a contractual protocol.
Highly qualified scientists and specialized journalists will attend the event and will make the E-Cat known to the public.
As for technical details, Rossi confirms that test have been run on multiple E-Cats connected in parallel simulating the structure of the plant in order to ensure a safe environment for the operations.
The plant is comprised of two modules of 500 KW each, with individual pumps providing the water supply and separate dissipators for reusing the output steam.
The start-up process consists in series of 6 modules being powered up at once, and not the entire plant or one module at a time, as supposed.
Rossi once again assures the public that safety is one of his priorities and the system has been tested to ensure a safe environment for operations.
