With the winter season here, in at least half of the world, the E-Cat is on many people’s minds as an alternative to coal oil and other fossil fuels used to warm houses and workplaces. The idea that a heating unit could cost pennies on the dollar in comparison to heating oil, and yet produce no waste, is typically more of a dream than a reality. However, with Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat, the possibility truly exists to make this possible.
However, there are other every day, every-man applications for this technology that fans of Mr. Rossi cannot ignore. Even though the scientist/inventor says that E-Cat use in transportation is decades away, many still hope that they will soon get their hands on a unit and adapt it for their vehicles.
Mr. Rossi has said, repeatedly, that he doesn’t think we’ll see E-Cat powered vehicles for another 20 years. But, small, personal vehicles are not the only modes of transportation. A poster to Mr. Rossi’s website, the Journal of Nuclear Physics, asked the scientist about using the E-Cat to power Naval vehicles. The poster, who goes by “Ecco Liberation”, said:
“We already know that probable automotive applications of your E-Cat technology are not feasible for several reasons at the moment or in the foreseeable future. What about Naval applications instead? While probably not suited for small private ships due to power density, safety issues and maybe response time, medium and heavy ships for passenger and cargo transportation look like the ideal practical application for this technology, even if just for heating purposes.”
Mr. Rossi’s reply was that, right now, he and his team are still focused on thermal and electrical generation. He does, however, agree with Ecco Liberation that ships will be a good choice for his units.
“We received requests from the naval sector. I think our technology will be useful in future for ships, but now we are focused on thermal and electric power generators. I think anyway that trains and ships will be more close to our tech than cars, trucks, let alone aircrafts.”
The U.S. Navy has actually done a great deal of its own research into LENR, and rumors are that this is the entity that actually purchased both Mr. Rossi’s original industrial E-Cat unit and the new Hot Cat. The 1mw Hot Cat is being manufactured right now, with the goal of delivery to a customer in March. Once that plant has been in operation for a while, it is supposed to be opened up to the public, and also to serve as proof of safety for home E-Cat certification purposes.
Most top world governments already have nuclear submarines, aircraft carriers, and destroyers. It’s entirely possible that, once the safe LENR devices developed my Mr. Rossi are on the market, we will potentially (in the longer term future) see cruise ships, ferries, barges, and other large commercial and domestic vehicles on the oceans and waterways. The dangers of atomic power have kept it out of the hands of individuals and companies, but with LENR, there will be none of those complications. And, who knows, as these large transports adapt to LENR, surely smaller versions for individual use will soon be developed.
