Rossi Working with Largest Electronics Company in Europe on Steam Technology
Engineers from Europe’s largest electronics and electronic company Siemens AG are helping Andrea Rossi in his efforts to develop a steam engine powered by his ecat cold fusion device.
Siemens engineers reportedly visited Rossi’s facility in Bologna and demonstrated a turbine that can generate power from steam at temperatures as low as 231 Celsius (484 Fahrenheit). That could make it possible to generate steam with the ecat and use it to produce electricity or to power ships, trains or industrial equipment. Rossi made this revelation to American blogger and writer Frank Acland of ecat world.com.
Rossi did not whether he has any sort of deal with Siemens or if he had any plans to buy the steam turbine technology. Nor did he say if Siemens has purchased an ecat or if the giant German company is an investor in his Leonardo Corp.
Rossi did tell Acland that he thinks this is a significant development in attempts to employ LENR devices to generate electricity. Presently all Rossi’s ecat unit can do is heat water and generate small amounts of steam.
Rossi also admitted to Acland that he has had to redesign and rebuild his 1.5 Megawatt ecat module. This device is supposed to generate 1.5 megawatts of heat not electricity This device was demonstrated in October but never shipped to Rossi’s customer. Rossi said his customer was a military organization he cannot name. Unverified internet speculation has identified as DARPA an arm of the US military. Rossi also admitted that no work has been done on the other 11 ecat plants customers have ordered.
Rossi once again elaborated on his proposed 10 Kilowatt ecat home heating device. He said it would weigh around 20 pounds and about one foot in length and diameter. Once again said it will be available next year and cost between $600 and $900 US. The devices are supposed to be made at a plant in the US. The devices would only be made in the US but shipped all over the world.
Rossi also stated that he will publish his “theory” on which ecat is based next fall. He didn’t say where but he also claimed it will take five years to patent ecat because of legal difficulties.
Siemens is a multinational conglomerate that makes everything from steam irons to electric trains. Siemens headquarters are in Munich, Germany, and it’s been around in one form or another since 1847. It currently employees 360,000 people in 190 countries and had revenues of $190 billion US (142 billion Euros) in 2011. If Rossi could get onboard with it he would have the resources he needs to complete his work.
From this it sounds like Rossi is making some progress but he hasn’t got his technology to work yet. Perhaps it would be better if Rossi would sell his technology to a company like Siemens and let them complete the work.
