Here’s something I never expected could be found: a poster going by the name of Nevanlinna on the Italian cobraf.com forum has done some amazing detective work, and somehow uncovered shipping data which confirms the shipping of the 1 MW E-Cat plant from Rossi’s Italian headquarters in Ferrara, Italy, to the United States.
There were actually two shipments involved. The first item, described as a ‘Steam Generator’ weighing 15,000 kg arrived in Norfolk, Virginia on August 1st, 2013.
The second shipment included a ‘heat exchanger’, ‘gas burner’, ‘calorimeter’ and ‘spare parts’ weighed 3,500 kg and arrived in Charleston, South Carolina on August 31st 2013.
Both shipments originated from the port of La Spezia in northwest Italy.
The supplier is listed as EFA SRL, an Italian company that Andrea Rossi and his wife own, and the buyer is listed as Leonardo Corp. of Miami Beach, Florida.
I’m not sure if there are too many people who believe that the E-Cat plant never actually got shipped, but here’s some concrete evidence confirming that it did. Having the shipments heading to Virginian and South Carolina would make sense if the ultimate destination was Triangle Park in North Carolina which is where I guess the plant is at the moment.
