Some recent comments from Andrea Rossi on the Journal of Nuclear Physics indicate that he is still involved in providing E-Cat SK heating to certain customers. The E-Cat SK was introduced in 2019, but it seems that it was launched on a very limited basis to certain customers with whom Rossi worked. He reported soon after the introduction of the SK that there were problems that they were dealing with, and the reactor was not always running (a backup heat source was a requirement).
Rossi has stated that the E-Cat SK plants that were originally installed are still in operation, but has provided very few details about them.
Now he is indicating that the SK is available as a heating source to industrial customers, but it sounds as if he is being quite selective about who he works with. Here are some recent Q&A’s on the topic:

Dear Mr. Rossi,
please consider to introduce also the E-Cat SK with heat output on 25. Nov.
I would like to order several of them.

The SK is not for sale yet, we sell the energy.

Are you currently taking orders to sell heat to qualified customers from the E-Cat SK?

You confirmed to Frank Ackland that you are taking orders for the Ecat SK.
I hope you can give us some details which customers you might consider.
1. Do you require some special abilities of the customer?
2. If so can you mention some?
3. What is the minimum level in KW heat you would consider?
4. What is the temperature range of heat?
5. What can the medium for heat transfer be both gas and liquid?
6. What would be about the delivery time for a minimum size system?
7. Has your strategy regarding the SK changed recently?
8. If not, you may have a number of customers to whom you deliver heat at this moment. Is that the case?
Thank you if you can answer!
Kind regards, Gerard

2- depends on the situations
3- as in 2
4- as in 2
6- as in 2
It sounds to me like Rossi will be dealing with potential SK heat customers on a case-by-case basis, and maybe it is still in the very early stages. Whatever the case, it is being done very quietly. Certainly no customer has stepped up and says they are using E-Cat SK heat. If Leonardo was pushing hard for customers one would think they would be providing more information about the service to attract business in this field.
