Many thanks to E-Cat World reader Renzo for providing the following translation of remarks made at the recent E-Cat conference in Pordeneone, Italy by Gianvico Pirazzini, an architect in Bologna, and a member of Leonardo Corporation’s team. We English speakers are at a disadvantage in many ways with so much important information coming from Italy, and I know that readers here will join me in thanking Renzo for his important contributions. I have bolded a few sections that I found particularly interesting for emphasis
Good day, my name is Gianvico Pirazzini, I am an architect of Bologna, and I’ve been part of eng. Rossi’s team for about 2 years. I was initially involved in the Ecat project to fix the domestic version. Subsequently, and later I’ll explain why, I’ve been working on the industrial version. Also architect Pio Ruggeri of Bologna would have been present today with me, unfortunately he was involved in a serious car accident and he said it will have it for a few weeks. Best wishes for healing, I hope he recovers as soon as possible because we have a crazy lot of work to do.
Well: the stone age did not end because the stones were gone, the era of commercial sailing ships did not end because the galleons on the high seas had no more more wind that blew the sails, the age of oil, intended as an energy source, will not end because there will not be more oil wells or reservoirs. History is replete with examples of technological revolutions that led to see and interpret the world, since they had been applied on a large scale, in a completely different way from before.
Another feature of these revolutions, and technical evolutions, of these changes, is that the witnesses, the protagonists, rarely notice it. If they find out they see it after the revolution, once the change has occurred. And it is rare that this is normal.
We at Leonardo corporation, we are absolutely aware of what we have at hand, we are fully aware of what we are running and we are absolutely certain that in a relatively short period of time, and I’m talking no more than a few years, this technology will be able to change the world.
The devices, both domestic and industrial (sorry I often use the term domestic because it is the first device on which I started to work), that the genius of Rossi has created, are capable of producing significant amounts of energy in a clean and, above all, cheap way. The E-Cat combines, in a device a little bigger than a shoe box, the power of nuclear reactions associated with the benefits of renewable energy.
The elements of activation of the reaction are absolutely common and absolutely safe: hydrogen and nickel. And, at the end of the process, most important of all, we do not have any residue that may be dangerous or harmful to the environment.
What we are implementing, and we know what we are doing, is a revolution in the energy field by applying a low energy nuclear reaction.
Eng. Rossi and Leonardo Corporation are using all the resources available to give to the market as soon as possible and, broadly speaking, to humanity, the benefits of this technology. Clean inexhaustible energy, and, above all, at a fraction of the cost.
At present, after the decision to postpone the production of domestic Ecats, the 1 MW plants (which are the pictures that some of you have seen on the web, a container with strange things inside) are no longer prototypes but are already pre-production elements. We are not talking about experiments, we are talking about objects that have already passed the validation of an international entity for the monitoring of safety.
The COP, i.e. the ratio between the energy input and the energy output, from this first production of 1 MW industrial containers is about 1 to 6 (being on the side of safety as a value). We chose to …. a COP 1:6 for reasons of safety, reliability, control, but especially of humility towards a technology and a form of energy that nobody before the engineer Rossi pulled it out of the bottle, knew.
