Italian Inventor Andrea Rossi has been very busy working on still another innovation of his Low Energy Nuclear Reaction power device. We are talking about the 45 megawatt LENR power plant. Rossi is reported to be working on this giant project at his facility in Bologna Italy. This 45 MW heat plant only became possible after years of research and prototypes that became viable to allow the E-Cat to perform on a higher temperature without compromising safety and usage security or the increase of Nickel input.
So with the higher performance and heat levels the E-Cat can produce, heat is not the only one that it can produce but it could also generate electricity as well. A post on the Rossi website stated that the new mammoth 45 megawatt LENR plant would be able to generate 45 MW of heat and 15 MW of electricity. The cost of one 45 MW plant is estimated to be at 30 million with the currency not specified at this time.
What is also known so far is that Leonardo Corporation is in the process of building an E-Cat manufacturing plant and its location is becoming highly controversial. Official statements given either by Rossi or other Leonardo Corporation representatives pointed towards an undisclosed site location somewhere within the United States of America. Many hints are pointing towards Miami, Florida. Other sources indicated that the Rossi E-Cat manufacturing plant site is located overseas. The most logical guess would be in Europe.
Rossi claimed that the whole manufacturing line will be operated by robots to keep the cost of the 10 kilowatt domestic E-Cat unit as low as possible. The domestic E-Cat motor was designed to support personal home heating systems and water boilers. And this would ultimately lead to significant electricity and gas expense cuts for the home.
Considering the dramatic hype around the Rossi E-Cat for domestic use and the things it promises, the general public has yet to see any of the E-Cat devices and especially what it can do. The domestic E-Cat units, according to Rossi will go into mass production in the fall of 2012.
Meanwhile Leonardo Corporation competitor showed off during a demonstration where they allowed the observers to try and test the device themselves. If we go back and recall the few demonstrations that Rossi conducted in the last year, it can be recalled that the observations of the selected guests invited were quite promising but it always ended in the remark: inconclusive. The main reason for this is that the invited observers were not allowed to test and inspect the Rossi energy catalyzer up close.
Rossi recently has devised up a plan to make up for the secrecy and the guarded attitude by setting up a public event for one particular 1MW LENR e-cat plant in the U.S. The unit is still in its final completion stage. Details about the dates on when exactly this Rossi E-Cat public showcase will take place have not been posted. Italian inventor Andrea Rossi, however, has promised to give and update once he and the rest of the Leonardo Corporation team will come up with the decision on the date and venue of the E-Cat exhibit.
Surely, the time has come for Leonardo Corporation to be more open to the public.
