Rossi Says he is having Financial Problems but they Will Not Affect October E-cat Launch
On September 16, 2011, Andrea Rossi stated that he is having “very big financial problems” in his blog. Rossi did not know go into detail about these problems but he said that a customer that he has counted on could not maintain his financial engagements. This could refer to Defkalion the Greek company that claimed it would manufacture and sell e-cat devices later this year. Rossi had a deal with them but broke it off in July.
Rossi did state the money problems will not affect his e-cat test scheduled for October. He has also stated that people can make commercial arrangements for the device in November. What these arrangements are remain to be seen.
He stated that some additional e-cat tests will take place in Uppsala Sweden at the University of Uppsala. The tests would involve Swedish physicists Hanno Essen and Sven Kullander. Rossi told the Swedish technology magazine Ny Teknik that Kullander and Essen helped him with the design of the 1 MW e-cat unit he recently showed Ny Teknik reporter Mats Lewan.
The Uppsala test would involve water heated by an e-cat being passed through a radiator. The purpose of this would be to develop a self sustaining e-cat mode. This would be the first time that an e-cat would be publicly tested and demonstrated outside of Rossi’s labs or workshops. There have been reports of secret e-cat tests in the US.
