Just a quick post to report that Andrea Rossi posted today that preliminary testing of the 1 MW E-Cat Plant is underway, and that so far he seems happy with progress.
This morning Rossi wrote:
“Good Sunday also to you, while I write this comment we are testing the 1 MW plant, which is working well so far. I am very sorry of the very restricted attendance, due to the particular kind of our Customer, but during the test on this blog we will transmit the main data of the test every hour, while at midnight we will publish the full report and a video. The direct transmission is not possible because the officers of the Customer want not to be videotaped.”
So now we learn of the some of the conditions of the mystery Customer: no live webcam (which Rossi had previously said would be running) and apparently no filming of the consultants from the Customer. It’s good, though, to hear that there will be ongoing reports during the duration of the test, as there will likely be lots of people looking for updates from the event.
Sterling D. Allen, of PESWiki has stated that he will be in attendance at the Bologna event, and it may be that he will be able to transmit information while the test is ongoing. It’s likely that there will also be others from the media there, so even though we won’t be getting live streaming video, hopefully there will still be good live coverage.
The anticipation builds.
