First Rossi LIES about National Instruments, Now Rossi is Caught Lying about Working with Siemens

If you want to learn the latest from us, who are “nutty as a fruit cake,” (as Gary Wright has been called), just read on. Oh yes, and keep following our website, no matter what people call us, because as in any show and farce, there is a lot going on behind the curtains, more than the audience sees, even those in the front row seats. And you will get the truth here, all information we publish is verified and authenticated.

You cannot help but wonder when John T. Vaughn and Thomas F. Darden, who are the leaders of Industrial Heat LLC and Cherokee Investment Partners, are going to wake up and publicly distance themselves from Andrea Rossi and his e-cat fraud and scam. In our opinion, the longer they wait the harder it will be to do the right thing. Not only that, but in our opinion, the longer they wait the deeper the hole they are digging for themselves, and the harder it will be to climb out of it when they finally decide to do the right thing, if they ever do, that is.

If John T. Vaughn and Thomas F. Darden think their silence and lack of a website is helping their cause they are sadly mistaken. In our opinion, the false statement provided to a reporter by Thomas F. Darden was based on the hope the statement would help obtain and keep “investors.” Investors that have already, or might in the future, buy into the fraud and scam they are now running in partnership with Andrea Rossi. Please see our articles here:

Thomas F. Darden LIES about the ‘Elforsk-Levi Test #2’

Andrea Rossi E-cat and Industrial Heat, LLC – Rossi’s Fatal Error?
http://freeenergyscams.com/andrea-rossi-and-industrial-heat-llc-rossis-fatal-error/

In our opinion, what John T. Vaughn and Thomas F. Darden should be doing right now is filing a lawsuit against Andrea Rossi and his other partners for fraud. In our opinion, John T. Vaughn and Thomas F. Darden should be giving back the $11.5 million+ those 11-12 investors put up to start Industrial Heat LLC, (information that is documented in SEC filings), and they should immediately dissolve Industrial Heat LLC. They already have a different company working with their other energy projects such as solar. It is misdirection to try and get people to think Industrial Heat LLC was for anything other than to promote Rossi’s fraud and scam the e-cat. As long as John T. Vaughn and Thomas F. Darden continue as they are doing we have no choice but to believe they are willing partners in Rossi’s e-cat fraud and scam just like Roger Green in Australia, and the folks at Hydrofusion.

Rossi does not have now, Rossi never had, and Rossi never will have, any cold fusion/LENR device that works as Rossi has been claiming all these years.

For those who think Rossi’s lying is come kind of “business strategy” please take into consideration that almost every one of Rossi’s lies has nothing to do with “hiding” his so called “magic sauce,” or the “interior design” of his device, neither do they throw “competitors” off the trail. There is no “trail.” There are no “competitors.” There is no working cold fusion/LENR device, by Rossi or anyone else. Every one of Rossi’s lies is for only one purpose, and that is to get and keep INVESTORS in his e-cat fraud and scam.

Part 1 – Rossi on National Instruments

The only reason Rossi’s fraud and scam continued on from January 14, 2011 was because NOBODY called Rossi’s bluff. That, and because Rossi had Focardi by his side. We mean that everyone involved should have made public statements, such as, that based on his past history what Rossi was doing now, more likely than not, was just another fraud and scam. And everyone involved should have said that they would not support his claims or his project until Rossi proved by true scientific methods that the original device that started it all, the one at the January 14, 2011 demo, actually worked as claimed.

No one should have taken Rossi, Focardi, Levi, or anyone else “at their word.” Claims like they were making, some of the most extraordinary scientific and engineering claims in the history of mankind, require careful study and testing by truly independent third parties.

And under no circumstances should anyone have “tested” or “demoed” a different “model” of the e-cat until the original device had been fully tested and vetted by truly independent third parties. As a matter of fact we wonder why NOT ONE person requires this proof even today. Rossi and all of his partners in his fraud and scam have been claiming since November 2011 that the original low temperature 1MW plants are for sale. They still claim that today – as this is published. Remember the 1MW plants are supposedly made up from 50 or 100, (it changes all the time), smaller low temperature modules.

Why doesn’t every person involved with Rossi and his e-cat farce issue a PUBLIC statement that until Rossi allows a true independent third party test, (by a university or national lab), of one of his 10-20 KW low temperature devices, (supposedly for sale now) they are going to remove any and all support or belief in any of Rossi’s devices or claims? Or something similar.

It is funny that Rossi used the claim of working with the University of Bologna, claiming they were testing one of his devices, because an association like this gives “credibility” to Rossi’s claims. But yet NO ONE will actually force Rossi to have his device tested officially by any university, nor will anyone it seems, publicly remove their support of Rossi even if Rossi refuses to have such a test done.

What can anyone lose by forcing Rossi to a formal university test? What can anyone lose if they say that if Rossi refuses a formal university test, they will distance themselves from Rossi and his e-cat fraud and scam?

If Rossi is running a fraud and scam, they lose nothing, and clear their name. If Rossi really has something, than they get the satisfaction and peace of mind knowing they were right all along, and all of the critical statements by the critics will cease.

In this farce called the e-cat, one of the pivotal moments came in 2012 when Steve Krivit published the denial by Julia Betts that National Instruments was working with Andrea Rossi, and Betts clearly stated that National Instruments was NOT designing or building the control systems for Rossi’s 1MW e-cat plants.

Out of the blue, comes this statement by Julia Betts directly from National Instruments, a statement that clearly showed that Rossi had been lying about this for a long time, now everyone knew without a shadow of a doubt that Rossi was running a fraud and scam. To our knowledge this was the first direct proof of the Rossi e-cat fraud, that reached the e-cat itself, including claims made by Rossi’s licensees.

Every licensee website said that National Instruments was providing the control system for the e-cats that were for sale. Even to this day, 11/29/2014, Roger Green in Australia has documents on his website that still claim the control system is made by National Instruments.

spec 1Technical Overview of the eCat Technology
http://e-cataustralia.com/files/pdf/ECAT-Technical-overview-1.pdf

spec 2Why was this admission by Betts so important?

Yes we know, all of the critics during 2011 clearly were able to show that NONE of the tests and demos put on by Rossi and his team during 2010 and 2011 conclusively proved that Rossi’s e-cats worked as claimed. But up to this time the proof published by critics such as Krivit and others was only 99.999% proven, i.e., there was still some room for doubt, no matter how small. With one major exception, and that was the comments put online by UNIBO that they were not involved with Rossi. But even the comments by UNIBO did not reach to the e-cat itself, they just proved Rossi was a liar.

That is why Frank Acland, one of Rossi’s must vocal supporters, who clearly saw the importance of what National Instruments said through Julia Betts, immediately published his take on Betts’s statements made to him. But Acland never published the actual email he received. The position taken by Acland was completely false, propaganda at its best. But Acland’s attempt to twist the meaning of what happened only resulted in a new statement from Julia Betts, more definitive, that clearly showed, beyond any doubt, that Andrea Rossi and now Acland were both lying.

Here is the story in a nutshell.

[We will not be correcting any of the typos and spelling in quotes from Rossi’s blog, where these statements came from, unless stated otherwise.]

Sterling D. Allan (on PESN.com) and Rick Meisinger (on Facebook) wrote/(blogged) that National Instruments has been signed up to do the Instrumentation and Control work on the production E-Cats. That’s great news. My question is a simple one. Did you choose National Instruments because they are a great company or because their initials are NI (for Nickel)? Or both!

Pure Energy Systems News
Today, Leonardo Corporation, led by Andrea Rossi, inventor and developer of the one-megawatt cold fusion E-Cat plant, signed an agreement with National Instruments (NI), to have them make all the instrumentation for the E-Cat plants, which began commercial sales on October 28, following the successful test in Bologna, Italy of the first 1 MW heat plant to the first customer.

Dear Andrea Rossi,
this/these cracker(s) are just loosing their and your IT staff time. This journal is no more the only way you or your staff can release informations about e-cat. Thanks to internet a lot of other websites and bloggers are always ready to release news about this new technology. If they want to stop or delay your job, i think it is completely unuseful, because you can’t stop a tzunami with a glass.
I read the news about National Instruments and i will personally share this great news with all my friends, “va mo la’!” as we say in Bologna.
Best wishes to Leonardo Corp. and partners for this great adventure, more than ever you should continue to “lavolale lavolale”

Dear ing. Rossi good evening
I read this post: @ Italo “National Instruments signs to do E-Cat controls”
If, as seems to be, it is true I ask kindly because it was not possible to Commission the control system to an Italian firm.
You know … with the crisis of our economic system to me sorry that Italian take flight abroad.
Don’t forget about us and if you can keep as much as possible the production cycle of the E-Cat in our beautiful Italy with much needed new technologies to make breathe the industrial fabric and give work to our young people.
Thank You
Andrea Rossi

Dear Rossi,
you told to have found a customer who bought your 1MW e-cat. it seems it is National Technologie. but this firm declared that you are a customer for them, not thr contrary.
Can you explain that to us how many orders have you had from other customers and when you think you are delivering them?
I’m prayinf for your siccess!
Thanks
Giuseppe Vimercati

Andrea Rossi
November 20th, 2011 at 7:33 PM
Dear Giuseppe Vimercati:
National Instrumnents is a Supplier of us, not a Customer.
Our Customer wants not to be made known.

Dear James Arness:
1- 20 was the number I remembered when I answered, but I was wrong. Yesterday I have been precise because the same day I worked, report at hand, with the Customer to study the control systems which we are commissioning to National Instruments, so that I was very fresh in memory.
2- all these data have been recorded, obviously, by the Consultant and his report is not publicable.
3- the water pumps brought the water in the common rail which feeds the reactors and the common rail is in higher position respect the circuit.
The circuit is complex and based upon a geodynamic design that, anyway, is proprietary for obvious reasons. No more particulars of it will be given.
Warm Regards,

Mr. Rossi
You are new Edison. Your success will be depended on the technological impovements of the E-cat claim.
Question: Is the National Instruments good enterprise for you and how many jobs make for you.
Merry Christmas
Andrea Rossi
December 23rd, 2011 at 5:04 PM
Dear Jan Srajer:
National Instruments is the best Partner a manufacturer of plants of high technology can have. We are learning from them, and thanks to them the 1 MW plant we are finishing for our Customer is growing up a magnificence. Useless to say, all our plants will be supplied by the control systems of N.I. We are honoured to be supplied by them. The most important thing of their working way is that they do not just supply their technology, but they teach to you to grow up in its knowledge to make you able to peer-interfacing with them, like they do not just sell you good fish, but also teach you how to fish, so that fishing is empowered.
Warm Regards,

Good morning Mr. Rossi,
in the United States even politicians are getting involved with LENR.
I wanted to ask if his plant 1mw is already in operation somewhere in the world, thanks and best wishes.
Andrea Rossi
January 3rd, 2012 at 4:43 AM
Dear Pietro F.:
No, the Customer, National Instruments and us are still working on the re-engineering of all the control systems. The partnership with National Instruments is revolutionizing and tremendously improving our plants, and this work is also useful for the domestic E-Cats, which will have the same control system. We are really learning.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

Mr. Rossi: Can you provide us any more information on the E-Cat that was sold as a result of the November 28th demonstration. Is it operating? How is it being used?
Thanks
Andrea Rossi
January 3rd, 2012 at 12:20 PM
Dear Bernie Koppenhofer:
No, we are still working on it with the Customer and with National Instruments to upgrade the control systems and to make it fit for the specific task it has to go to do. As I said, a magnificence is growing up, while we are making stronger the E-Cat technology and engineering.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

Hello dear Rossi, are one of the first who has booked your E-Cat and who believes in the success of your idea, although in reality I do not know if at that time I will be really acquistarlo..Dipende price. I can buy it later for the same price? Will provide you publish and gradually all the information for connecting home with all the data and parameters required and the service network? Also I wanted to know if customers plant 1 MW are satisfied with the performance and the resulting savings they’re getting, because this point is crucial … Thanks

Andrea Rossi
January 13th, 2012 at 5:51 PM
Dear Paolo:
You can buy the E-Cat when you want. The price is not gonna change in real value. The 1 MW Customer is not yet working with the 1 MW plant, because we are still completing the control systems with National Instruments.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

 

Roger
January 15th, 2012 at 2:21 PM
There is a rumor going about that you are having trouble stabilizing the e-cats due to non-homogeneous evolution of energy within the Ni powder that melts the powder locally and shuts the process down. If so you might benefit by adding radial fins extending into the chamber to provide more heat transfer area and a path to the outer surface of the reactor. In addition, the inclusion of copper beads to the power would act as a damper to temporarily absorb bursts of heat and would reduce the local temperature gradients within the Ni powder. I wish you well in your endeavors.

Andrea Rossi
January 15th, 2012 at 5:15 PM
Dear Roger:
I am not a rumorist, so I do not care of rumors. Our E-Cats are perfectly stable up to 200 Celsius degrees, while we are resolving the problems to raise the temperature of the primary fluid to 400, to be able to make electricity. The reasons of instability at higher temperature are different from the rumors you heard about and we cannot give information about this issue, because is related to confidential data. National Instruments is helping us to resolve the issue.
Thank you for your attention,
Warm Regards,
A.R.

 

Roberto Cerri
January 16th, 2012 at 12:04 PM
Dear Mr Rossi,
are an admirer of his and I make a proposal.
Take certify the operation of his E-cat from National Instruments, so that even the skeptics have to think again. If you do not believe her, will believe the NI. Moreover, if the ‘E-cat has already’ received the patent in Italy, why not start selling it in our country? a hug, Roberto Cerri

Andrea Rossi
January 16th, 2012 at 4:05 PM
Dear Roberto Cerri:
Our work with National Instruments is in progress with great results. The sales of the 1 MW E-Cats are already in course in all the world, while the domestic will be put on sale hopefully starting from next autumn, and will be delivered starting from next winter, all over the world.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

Dear Ing. Rossi, I have watched this interview with you in Bologna realized on the 12th of January 2012
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=odkfAjqA4pc
In it appears a 1 MW container.
May I ask you if that container is the same used in the last test with ing. Fioravanti and already sold to your customer?
Thank you.
Kind regards,
Italo R.

Andrea Rossi
January 18th, 2012 at 6:44 PM
Dear Italo R.
Yes, it is the same: we are still working on it with National Instruments and with the Customer. It will take another month before it will be ready.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

 

Giuseppe B.
January 19th, 2012 at 9:30 AM
Dear Mr. Rossi,
I’m a really huge fan of E-cat, but I saw on your latest video the 1MW contanier still on the laboratory, and now I’m worried that the customer may have returned it to you, for some kind of problems.
Is it the same container of October test, or it is another one? If it’s another can you confirm that the first one is performing good?
Thank you for all, I can’t describe the respect for your work and especially for your person.
Best regards.

Andrea Rossi
January 19th, 2012 at 10:35 AM
Dear Giuseppe B.
The 1 MW plant has been accepted and the sale has been confirmed after the October 28th test, as I said. We decided together with the Customer and National Instruments to make all the control systems and all the fixings of the gaskets in our factory of Bologna, instead of in the Customer’s place. The delivery will be made within one, or maximum 2 months, when all the works will have been completed. A misunderstanding, due to bad translation, has made thinK the plant was already in the place of the Customer.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

Dear Wolf:

I can´t find your answer to Giuseppe B. Which answer do you mean?
Could you clarify this?
Thanks!
Stefan

Andrea Rossi
January 20th, 2012 at 4:51 PM
Dear Stefan:
As I answered to Giuseppe B., I never said that the 1 MW E-Cat has been already delivered to the Customer, probably it has been a misunderstanding due to not precise translation. As I repeatedly said, the 1 MW E-Cat is still in our Bologna Factory to complete the control system upgrading we are making with National Instruments and to make modifications asked from the Customer. The plant will be delivered in the next 1, maximum 2 months.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

 

Lu Fong
February 19th, 2012 at 2:15 PM
Dear Andrea Rossi,
I am watching the development of the E-Cat very carefully. Yesterday it was reported that National Instruments and Leonardo Corporation/Andrea Rossi or partners are no longer doing business together.

  1. Is this true? If true will this development affect your manufacturing schedule of 12-18 months?
  2. Does the E-Cat have a control system ready for commercialization and manufacture in your factory?
  3. Is delivery of the 1MW E-Cat to your 1st customer still on schedule (less than 1 month from now)?

Thanks and good luck with your invention and work.
L.F.

Andrea Rossi
February 19th, 2012 at 2:52 PM
Dear Lu Fong:
I have received many comments with the same questions regarding National Instruments, so I answer to you and the answers are valid also for the other Readers who have put the same questions.
We have worked very well with N.I., and we have learnt from them very much. We are very grateful to them for all what they have teached to us, training our technological people in a very useful way, for weeks.
As I said already, Leonardo Corporation is structurally changed in these last weeks, and the Trust to which now Leonardo Corporation belongs has chosen other suppliers. Also our Customer has chosen other suppliers. We will remain always grateful to NI for what they teached to our people and we will ask in future proposals also to them . Personally, I am convinced that sooner or later we will buy also their systems.
Said this, I want answer in the detail to your questions:
1- Our scheduling, obviously, will not be affected, the suppliers we have chosen are already respecting all the scheduled milestones.
2- 3- Yes, we have already the control systems set up in the 1 MW plant, which will be delivered to the Customer very soon. By the way, such systems have been chosen directly from the Customer, who preferred a supplier he was already working with.
I want to add that we have chosen other Customers not because better, but only because of their longstanding collaboration with our Partners and Customer. I personally think that NI is a very good company and, again, we will maintain them in our list of Suppliers, honoured of this.
The 1 MW plant is a magnificence, and the preparation of the robotized line to produce the E-Cats is in schedule to start the production within Autumn and the deliveries within the next Winter, with some luck; in the worst case, within 18 months we will deliver, and we will deliver at the prices we promised. The technology has been revolutionized, we are testing the new E-Cats and we are very satisfied. This very week we will start to use the new control system made by the new Supplier.
Let me do a last consideration: the fact that snakes and clowns have used this episode to create a mess is the demonstration that we have not to release the names of our Partner, Suppliers and Customers, to avoid the falsifications that the puppet snakes and the clowns make up and, over all, the disturbments that they bring up to all the entities working with us. We all need to work in peace. We have to work in our factories 16 hours per day (also today, Sunday) and we have not time at all to compete in the field of the chatters of snakes who are PAID by their puppeteers to try to create a mess from nothing.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

 

Mark Saker
February 22nd, 2012 at 7:01 AM
Dear Andrea Rossi,
I have read that National Instruments have confirmed your version of events which is great news against the sceptics.
I also noticed that you mentioned on your blog that you now have the control system in place on the 1MW reactor. I wonder if you can answer these questions:

  1. Have you had the 1MW container working at 1MW, and if so for how long?
  2. Have you switched the 1MW device off, then on again with satisfactory results?
  3. What is the temperature of the output that the 1MW reactor is running at?

Many Thanks

Andrea Rossi
February 22nd, 2012 at 8:53 AM
Deare Mark Saker:
The snake is not a skeptic, is a puppet paid by puppeteers who would compete with us but are not able to. He is strongly connected with their company. He gets money to make libelling against us also from other 2 well identified entities. We will give detailed and throughly information in due time. Everything in due time, we will get some fun.
Answers:
1- 48 hours
2- Same of the 28th Oct test
3- From 101 through 110 Celsius
Warm Regards,

No, we made the control systems by our electronic engineers. We designed and produced all the control system inside our factory.

Part 2 – Rossi on Siemens

This brings us to the second part of today’s story. We have found out that Rossi has been lying all along about working with Siemens, just like Rossi was lying about UNIBO, National Instruments, and all of the other thousands of lies Rossi has been telling his whole life.

If we had to put a number on it we would say for every true statement by Rossi, Rossi spews forth at least a hundred that are completely false, directly or indirectly.

Here is the Siemens story.

[We will not be correcting any of the typos and spelling in quotes from Rossi’s blog, where these statements came from, unless stated otherwise.]

Anders F

When looking for turbines I would suggest you try talking to the larger manufacturers of steam turbines. Even if companies like Siemens AG don’t have really small turbines in their product portfolio, they are sure to have prototypes. Besides you need the knowledge and the production capacity of a large manufacturer in order to be able to expand rapidly. For your MW plants Siemens have turbines that will work, for generators I would talk to ABB. I am not affiliated with either company but know for a fact that both provide products with excellent quality and durability.

Andrea Rossi

Dear Andrea Rossi,
Your newest cooperation with the large turbine/electric company is very good news. I hope they will help you develop something small like this turbine that can fit in your hand. (a bit larger perhaps)
http://newenergyandfuel.com/http:/newenergyandfuel/com/2012/02/21/a-turbine-generator-in-a-suitcase/
I spoke to a Siemens representative back in July 2011 about a 300 kW turbine for the 1MW container but there was nothing appropriate to help you then. You have made much progress.
Best Wishes,
Stephen

Andrea Rossi
February 26th, 2012 at 5:23 AM
Dear Stephen T.:
Thank you, we are working with focus on the electric power production: it’s it the way which will bring us to the total self sustaining.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

 

Alfonso Troisi
March 3rd, 2012 at 2:03 AM
Dear Mr. Rossi,
I would like to know how the meeting with Siemens went. What they proposed was interesting and puts you near your goal of producing electricity with the home unit?
Thank you and have a miracle day!

Andrea Rossi
March 3rd, 2012 at 8:39 AM
Dear Alfonso Troisi:
We are working hard on this issue. The Siemens turbine, anyway, will be for plants over 15 electric MW of power, no way to make it fit for small applications.
Probably we will start soon the production of a 15 MW plant, totally self sustained utilizing part of the electric energy it produces to drive the E-Cat modules and using the remaining thermal energy for heating.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

 

Eric Ashworth
March 28th, 2012 at 2:06 PM
Dear Mr Rossi, I am aware that your e-cat cannot generate electricity because of the quality of the steam not being sufficiently dry. Is the e-cat unable to get to the required temperature or is it that if it does the reaction becomes too violent and unstable?. If it does become too violent there may be a method to stabilize the reaction. Best regards Eric

Andrea Rossi
March 28th, 2012 at 5:21 PM
Dear Eric Ashworth:
The problem has been that our steam is not enough hot. But now we reached 260 Celsius, so the application of industrial turbines made by Siemens is possible, We are reaching the target.
Anyway, if you have suggestions they will be totally welcome.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

 

Steven N. Karels
March 28th, 2012 at 5:39 PM
Dear Andrea Rossi,
I have been following the development of eCat for the last year. I was happy to see your technical progress as the COP went from single digit numbers to a self-sustaining condition. My concern for the self-sustaining mode of operation is stability. With no electric (heating) input, how is control maintained? Have you considered controlling the hydrogen pressure as the mechanism to “close the loop” around the Ni-H reaction. Since very little hydrogen is consumed at any one time, it should be possible to rapidly change the pressure and effect the desired reaction level. I know that when you wish to terminate a run, you remove any electrical heating and release the hydrogen, from published reports. Looking forward to your response.

Andrea Rossi
March 28th, 2012 at 7:48 PM
Dear Steven N.Karels:
We are resolving the stabilization problems, to a level that will allow the production of steam able to get good efficiencies from turbines to produce electric power. As I said, we are resolving the problems with the new Siemens tirbines. What you say, by the way, is right. About the other comment of yours: we are working very well in our factory in the USA, ignore the stupidities of the pippet snakes.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

Mr. Rossi,
I was wondering if the feedback you’re getting via this site costs you your valuable time.
Things like low-temp turbines, Stirling engines etc. will be a natural thing to put together with your E-Cat and the industry will find the best solutions in no time (of course paying you your licensing dues!). They need your generally available units out the door for the anticipated and unavoidable huge energy revolution to ignite. This is the priority for you and for everybody. Some of the postings seem to contain some nonsense and there is hardly anything sensible and new that could be proposed. Perhaps your time is way better spent getting your devices to the market.
Cheers!

Dear Andy H.:
We are working with Siemens on the issue, mainly, and we also are glad to check all the proposals we receive.
Warm Regards,

Dear Andy H.:
I want to add that we are setting up a division to produce and sell thermal energy, in future electric energy. We are in contact with Companies selling thermal energy to put our plants adjacent to their network to produce energy, inject it in their grid.
Warm Regards,

Dear Andrea Rossi,
It is great to hear you are continuing to produce steam at 600C with no stability issues. This is something to dance about! A few quick questions…
1) If 600C is the temperature of the steam, what is the temperature inside and on the surface of the reactor core? Is it close to the melting point of nickel?
2) Here is an article on the Siemens website about how a new technology was needed to prevent 600C steam from damaging a conventional steam turbine. They figured out a design that could provide COOLING to certain parts of the turbine to prevent damage from the super-critical steam. This new generator has 45% efficiency (FORTY FIVE PERCENT!) with 600C steam. This article proves that stable, 600C steam is MORE than enough to provide EXCELLENT efficiency!

Are there any specific turbines or other systems you are favoring to be the first to be mated with an E-Cat?
3) Thank you for being willing to share some test data from the new E-Cat. I’ll be looking forward to it! Any idea when we might be able to expect it being posted?

Keep up the great work!
Sincerely,
Hank Mills

Dear Hank Mills:
1- 600 celsius is the temperature of the external surface of the primary heat exchanger.
2- thank you. We are studying with Siemens; somebody told me with these temperatures they will become lyric
3- I will make a publication on the Journal Of Nuclear Physics of this test when it will be finished
Thank you for your continuous attention,
Warm Regards,
A.R.

Dear Andrea Rossi,
Is there a theoretical limit in your mind to the potential temperature of the Hot Cat?

Andrea Rossi
August 8th, 2012 at 10:04 AM
Dear Jake Di Vita:
There is a limit due to the fact that nickel melts at 1455 Celsius degrees, but we will have to heat water, so the actual limit will be 600 Celsius when we will go to make steam. At 600 Celsius the efficiency will be around 50%. Wre are working on this, now, with our Friends of Swedish Siemens Friends. When we told them we reached 1 200 Celsius they became lyric.
Warm Regards,
Andrea

Dear Joseph Fine
Unfortunately, we do not know if the ing. Rossi:
1 has actually converted the thermal energy of ECAT2 in electrical power;
2 if it were as to the point 1, which is the global efficiency of conversion obtained;
I tried to ask a pinch of news in my previous post, but nothing escapes our friend ing. Rossi.
Probably we will wait for the month of September or October.
I hope that it will not happen what says Charlie Sutherland.
Best Regards

Dear Francesco Toro:
1- not yet
2- now we are ready for the Carnot cycle, soon we will have the electric power. We are working with the Swedish R&D Center of Siemens on this issue. At the same time we are working on the direct conversion, but this is another movie.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

Dr Rossi,
Has the present E-Cat technology reached its pinnacle in the way of fundamental science? Will any further progress be limited to simple engineering refinements? If not, then what do you believe will be the next big step for the E-Cat?
All the best,
Joe

The next big step is in preparation between us and the Swedish Siemens R&D center.

Dear Dr. Rossi,
Since independent test results show the E-Cat running continuously for many hours, and the HotCat achieving temperatures over 1000 degrees C, plus the Siemens Ultra-Efficient steam turbine being able to run at less than 400 degrees C, where is the stumbling block that prevents the generation of electric power at this time using your invention? What type of R&D breakthrough do you need at time?
Best of luck with your R&D.
Best Regards,
Daniel G. Zavela

Daniel G. Zavela:
Things are not that simple, but we are working on that. I cannot give specific information until we are ready with the electric power generation on the market. Let me also remind you that the results of the test made could be positive, but also negative.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

Since Rossi specifically said he was working directly with the Swedish Siemens R&D center we thought that would be a good place to start to verify Rossi’s claims.

This was important to us because Rossi has continually claimed, starting in 2011 that he was developing a version of his device that would produce electricity as well as heat. Rossi claimed:

“2- now we are ready for the Carnot cycle, soon we will have the electric power. We are working with the Swedish R&D Center of Siemens on this issue. At the same time we are working on the direct conversion, but this is another movie.” and

“The next big step is in preparation between us and the Swedish Siemens R&D center.”

It is funny how many times Rossi makes the statement that what he is doing is a movie, or a show, or something like that, he does it quite often.

We decided to first contact Maria Baldin, based on her CV. We are sure you will agree, here is a part of her CV.

Maria Baldin
Head of Communications & Sustainability at Siemens AB
Siemens AB
Stockholm County, Sweden
November 2008 – Present (6 years 1 month)
Heading an integrated communications department consisting of all communication functions in Sweden ie. media, online, external marketing communications, internal communications, CSR and governmental affairs.
Additionally I’m head of sustainability in Sweden and lead the Swedish sustainability group.
I’m reporting to the CEO and am member of the executive management team.

We thought if anyone at Swedish Siemens would know about Andrea Rossi it would most likely be Maria Baldin.

And we were right on with our initial choice for a contact. We contacted Maria Baldin with the following questions.

Dear Maria Baldin,
In August 2012 Andrea Rossi was claiming Sweden Siemens R&D was working with him.
Rossi said:

 I am writing an article about Andrea Rossi and his e-cat.
Would you please provide details of the work Sweden Siemens R&D was doing with Rossi?
Please confirm if Sweden Siemens R&D was working working [sic] with Andrea Rossi in R&D on his e-cat.
Thank you.
