In an open letter response directed to Hank Mills of PESN, Defkalion comments its position on the ongoing Rossi-Defkalion controversy. The statement below from Defkalion’s official spokesperson Symeon Tsalikoglou, was released today:
“Defkalion Green Technologies realizes that there is a huge misunderstanding on what E-Cat and what Hyperion products are. We wish to clarify certain issues to eliminate confusion, wrongful speculations and accusations.
Andrea Rossi’s invention consists of a metal tube where the Ni-H reaction takes place in conjunction with the needed material for the successful reaction to take place.
Andrea Rossi has equipped his reactor lab prototype with a manually controlled hydrogen input valve and a manually controlled cooling system using water as a coolant and with basic electric and control electronics. Clearly, lab prototypes have minor demands for controls, automation and safety within the overall functionality of a final product.
The scientists and technical experts of Defkalion Green Technologies have witnessed several successful tests by Andrea Rossi on his lab prototypes, including a close follow-up on the improvements achieved by Andrea Rossi, in performance and technology of the reactor.
Hyperion products are designed to meet the highest demands and standards on safety and functionality as viable commercial products. Defkalion Green Technologies worked closely with Andrea Rossi and presented its designs to him since March 2011. All steps and tests of different Hyperion components on safety, security, electronics, and materials during our product development stages were communicated, signed and confirmed by Andrea Rossi.
It is important to note – and this must be made very clear – that there are significant differences between an e-cat (as a lab prototype system) and a Hyperion (as a final product), even though both are built around the same kernel (reactor), as invented by Andrea Rossi.”
Defkalion then goes on to list the key differences between the Hyperion product range and the E-Cat:
“These differences of Hyperion products with e-cats are mainly, but are not limited to, the following:
- Materials used in thermal isolation of different subsystems
- The cooling system of the reactor
- The heating management system, based on on-line, controlled by Hyperion’s PLCs, ultrasonic calorimeters/thermocouples and specially designed PLC-driven pumps
- The coolants in use
- The security systems of the products
- The tele-monitoring system of the products
- The handling of Hydrogen according to the highest anti-explosive EU specs”
In the second half of the statement Defkalion comments on the current state of development of their products and ends it all with a strong statement against, what they consider to be, false accusations and ill-informed rumors directed at them and/or Andrea Rossi. They also repeat their support for Andrea Rossi.
“Defkalion Green Technologies has designed, built and tested the materials and components for the final Hyperion products that are based on the same kernels (reactors) as of Andrea Rossi’s e-cats. Their official testing, certification and approval by the Greek Authorities is still in progress.
Defkalion is preparing all of its labs, the industrial production lines and support systems needed for the Hyperion kW range and MW range of products as designed, following all Andrea Rossi’s specs on instruments and production machinery, including specialized systems necessary for the preparation, on an industrial scale, of the ingredients placed within the reactor. These are built by Defkalion’s scientists and technicians, following the standards, specifications and designs provided and approved by Andrea Rossi himself.
The invention of Andrea Rossi and the product development by Defkalion Green Technologies are in a position to alter the global energy sector in more ways than many have comprehended. From the onset, Defkalion Green Technologies has always stated that this is a tremendous responsibility that needs to be addressed carefully and dealt with appropriately. This level of responsibility has always been kept and adhered to by all officials in Defkalion Green Technologies.
Based on the above, Defkalion Green Technologies does not wish and will not comment on micro-politics, nor does it believe that public opinions are pertinent to its business. However, we will not accept false accusations and we will not stand in silence against the misrepresentation of facts in our name.
Taking into consideration the various online spasmodic reactions, accusations and falsities that Defkalion Green Technologies (as Hyperion product developers and licensees of Andrea Rossi’s invention) and/or Andrea Rossi (as the inventor) are lying, this open letter to the community at large aims to rectify and clarify all possible misguided confusions and wrongful allegations.
Defkalion Green Technologies has always maintained its position in strict confidence and has carefully worded all information it possesses in a factual and responsible manner.
Andrea Rossi has made tremendous progress on his e-cat lab prototype, exclusively designed and demonstrated by himself. History will prove his contribution no doubt.
Defkalion Green Technologies, in good faith and in partnership with Andrea Rossi has believed in the project from day one, has worked hard to materialize the successful implementation of the technology on a global scale, has invested in all its efforts, and has incorporated leading scientists, industrialists and professionals to make industrial products to be available to the general public.
False accusations, misleading conclusions based on speculations, and fraudulent attacks against Andrea Rossi, Defkalion Green Technologies, or any involved persons serve no purpose other than to discredit the entire endeavor, to create frustrations that could damage the entire project, and ultimately to place the world in a situation where this technology is shelved for a long time to come.
Defkalion Green Technologies maintains its strong support to Andrea Rossi.
Defkalion Green Technologies with Andrea Rossi shall honor its responsibility to provide cheap and clean energy to the world at large with its best abilities. And, as such, we ask the community at large not to create unnecessary turmoil.
The world has waited for the over-unity miracle to be materialized for more than half a century. There is no need to rush in the final hours. Defkalion Green Technologies is continuing its preparation for product presentations, product production, and global licensing of its products as scheduled.
Defkalion Green Technologies”
No doubt, not everything is said and done on this topic. Interesting questions are whether Defkalion eventually will admit to any wrong doing in their relationship with Ing. Rossi and whether, if so, they will be able to make piece with him and move forward and focus on the task at hand without the burden of litigation.
