Andrea Rossi has been asked on the Journal of Nuclear Physics about the customer who has been supplied with the heat of the 1 MW plant. The name Henry Johnson, who is a Florida Attorney and also listed on some documents as president of Leonardo Corporation has been named in the License Agreement as president of JM Chemical Products, Inc. the apparent customer for the 1MW E-Cat plant.
See the last page of this document: http://www.sifferkoll.se/sifferkoll/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/Rossi_et_al_v_Darden_et_al__flsdce-16-21199__0001.2.pdf
Andrea Rossi provided this explanation.

I knew the Customer in the office of my Attorney Henry Johnson. They were enthusiast to test our 1 MW plant, to see if it really worked, because they were ( and are ) interested to buy more plants for their facilities in Europe. They wanted not to be exposed, though, therefore incorporated JM Products and made a plant for their production to make the test and appointed President their Attorney, who was also, as I said, my Attorney. IH knew all this and agreed, obviously, on this, making a rental agreement with JM Products to make the test in their factory. When IH met with the President of JM in Raleigh, I was present and I explained that he was also my Attorney. No problem has been raised by IH.
So from this explanation the true identity of the customer is hidden behind this new company formed in Florida for the purpose of of testing the E-Cat plant. Maybe we will not get a true understanding of who the customer is, even if the full report is published, if only the new company name is provided.
UPDATE: Mats Lewan just made this comment, and I thought I’d add it to the post:
Ok, so this is what I heard from sources having visited the plant and talked to the customer (who could of course be an actor, playing his part in a scam…) – that JMC set up a production unit of the same kind that they already have in UK, although smaller. Given the experience from their units in the UK they knew perfectly well how much energy should be consumed and how much energy was needed to run the unit. At least one engineer was sceptical in the beginning, but soon found out that the consumed electric energy was much less than expected, using the E-Cat plant as energy source for the hot steam. And the customer was happy as a lark with this.
I don’t know which the UK based company is, but I understood it’s not Johnson Matthey (which would have been a nice coincidence, since Johnson Matthey apparently once provided the working palladium samples to F&P), and as far as I know it has absolutely nothing to do with Hydrofusion.
