Rossi Reveals Schedule for ecat Rollout and Discusses Warranties etc.
Inventor and entrepreneur Andrea Rossi has revealed the scheduled for the rollout and marketing of his ecat low energy nuclear reaction heating system. Rossi is currently selling an industrial version of the device and is planning to bring out a domestic unit this year.
Posts at Rossi’s blog reveal the schedule he wants to follow if everything goes well. The schedule is as follows:
- February construction of robotized ecat factory probably located in the USA begins. Note the location for this has not been revealed.
- March and April Rossi will unveil or begin work on a 1MW industrial ecat water heater.
- November testing of the production line for 10 KW home ecat heating systems begins.
- December sales of 10 KW ecat systems to the public begins presumably in the USA.
This schedule is a little different than past schedules Rossi has discussed. He has mentioned August 2012 as a roll out date. That could be when he unveils the 10 KW system to the public.
The “roadmap” was not created by Rossi but by a forum poster called Gediminas on January 31. Rossi acknowledged it but admitted difficulties could delay it.

With the help of God yes, that is the roadmap.
A new video from Rossi in which he discusses costs and the warranty for the 10 KW home heating system has popped up online. Rossi said the system will cost between $400 and $450 US €304-€342 in continental Europe and £253 to £275 UK. He also said a kilowatt of heat produced by the home system would cost between $40 and $50 (£25 to £40 UK and €30 to €38 Europe).
He also predicted that the recharger the device that will replenish the ecat’s supply of nickel and hydrogen will cost tens or dollars or Euros but didn’t elaborate. As for a warranty the ecat would have a money back guarantee and a two year manufacturer’s warranty.
He also stated that a kilowatt of energy from the industrial ecats will cost between $1,000 and $1,500 to produce (€760 to €1114 Europe or £633 to £949 UK).
A video of Defkalion’s tests of its Hyperion nickel hydrogen low energy nuclear reaction device has also popped up online. Nothing is really said or revealed in the video but it does show the inside of the device. Hopefully Rossi will soon show us a youtube video of the ecat being used as a home-heating system. That could help dispel some of the skeptics.
