Hydro Fusion is looking for a Pilot Customer for the first ECAT 1 MW Plant to operate in Sweden. The customer will only pay for the energy produced by the ECAT, i.e. Hydro Fusion and Leonardo Corporation will take responsibility for all associated costs including: the plant itself, installation and any transportation costs. In return the Pilot Customer agrees upon
Scheduled Installation time by late fall 2013.
Hydro Fusion and Leonardo Corporation to use the Pilot Plant as a Showcase where external customers can be introduced to an ECAT 1 MW in operation.
Hydro Fusion is open to any type of heat application given the restriction of a maximum 120 C temperature. The ECAT’s energy specifications are:
Heat energy is produced according to specs.
Heat energy 1 MW thermal at up to 120 C
Heat exchanger from ECAT system to customer heat application.
Electricity is consumed according to specs.
250 kWe maximum power consumption
166 kWe average power consumption, i.e. COP=6
Hydro Fusion would like to receive quotations from Pilot Customers on both thermal MWh price and electric MWh price, based on an assumption of 7,000+ operating hours per year. Please specify clearly if your quotes depend on the outdoor temperature.
Pilot Customers, with an interest in this game changing technology, are kindly asked to contact us at email@example.com. Please write “Pilot Customer” in the subject of the email.

Daniele Passerini has posted another candid pic of Andrea Rossi’s “Hot” Cat on his blog. Passerini claims this photograph was taken sometime last year in 2012 and features the red hot device being pushed to its upper limits.
We have also been treated to pictures of the shipping and testing of the 1 MW Ecat plant from Rossi’s Journal of Nuclear Physics. The pictures were taken on April 30 – May 01 when the unit was purportedly transported from Bologna to Ferrara, Italy. Andrea Rossi has stated that this unit has been purchased by an American customer.
Andrea Rossi released a flurry of tantalizing messages last week, reporting a third party independent test of the eCat has concluded and the results will be available by the “middle of April.”
“I met with the 11 professors and experts that made the tests and they were very positive. One of them told me, “We got evidence that the “effect” is real beyond any reasonable doubt.’ …All the professors said the test is gone well, very well….The effect is stunning, we saw in our private tests, and has been replicated by the third independent party.”
Rossi also reported that the industrial 1 megawatt eCat acquired by an unidentified military customer has been available for 90% of the time, or about 8000 hours, with a COP of 6. Rossi reports the home eCat is “years away,” supposedly due to consumer testing and certification requirements.
Rumblings from the Rossi camp and now a press release from Prometeon SRL, the Italian Licensee of Leonardo Corporation’s E-Cat products, confirm the signing of a contract with a U.S. entity (translated):
A very important agreement concerning the Leonardo Corporation, producer of ‘E-Cat, was signed in October in the wake of the tests on’ Hot Cat made since June in Italy and the United States. A 1 MW thermal which uses the ‘Hot Cat should be in place during 2013 in a plant for the production and distribution of energy or located in the U.S. or in a country in which the counterparty is a signatory to the activities, and will be one of the first non-military applications of this revolutionary technology.
We are still digesting the information presented at the Zurich E-Cat Conference which concluded today. We’ll leave any conclusions up to the masses as you can now view the “Hot Cat” third party test results courtesy of PESN video:
“Many new things are happening day by day by day around this very important work.”
“This report comes from two separated tests made on the 16th of July and the 7th of August, made by the Certificator and professors from 2 Universities. We are under NDA with both, but I want to make very clear that this is not a final report, because all the measurements have to be repeated many times before reaching the reliability necessary to a product. Therefore all the measurements have to be repeated many times more. We are on the right way to make a very important product, but much R&D work has still to be done.”
