The long-rumored ecat factory could soon become a reality in Sweden. Rossi and his partners at Hydrofusion; the Northern European licensee for his low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology, made an offer on a factory in Sweden.
Rossi toured the 10,000 square meter factory and made a $3 million (€2.68 million) to $5 million (€4.47 million) offer to buy it during the week of May 9, 2016, Mats Lewan reported at his An Impossible Invention Blog. The facility will apparently be used to produce Rossi’s Quark X ecat device with robotic technology from the Swiss company ABB Group.
Rossi told Lewan that the factory could produce up to 500,000 items (presumably ecats) a year once it reaches full production. Lewan seems to think that will occur next year.
The Swedish tech journalist also supplied some details about the Quark X ecat including:
- The reactor will be about the size of a pen.
- The standard device will produce 100 watts of energy.
