In the past week the latest news with Leonardo Corporation/Andrea Rossi has been centered around the brief announcement of a February 2013 1 MW plant going into operation in the U.S. with public viewing after it operates for a certain time period.
“Yes, Leonardo Corp is very much powerful now. I can already say that the first 1 MW hot cat will go in operation within February 2013. It will not be a military application, therefore selected persons will be allowed to visit it. It will be installed in a big power production and distribution plant. This is the new. The plant is made in the USA. An extremely important agreement has been signed after the tests of the Hot Cat, which are going on since June in the USA and in Italy. The details will be communicated only after the plant will have been working for enough time to be visitable, also to avoid clubs in the wheels. That’s all I can say right now.”
Today this news is elaborated on a bit more in Andrea Rossi’s Journal, in which he also touches on the announced deadlines which he repeatedly makes and the expected delays which occur.
The first update a week ago stressed the plant was non-military related, and today he mentions “a major world holding” is behind the agreement.
We also hear the announcement of a projected public 1 MW plant viewing around May/June 2013, a month or so before the big ICCF 18 conference taking place this time around in the US, making for a lot of revision and last minute speech editing if everything goes as scheduled time wise, and the plant is operational and viewable to the selected public (i.e. likely many attending the conference).
Anyway, this is just an update on the projected plans which Rossi has announced. Many have become impatient, and perhaps more skeptical with the recent print media mainstream exposure. The usual knee jerk responses are expected, but feel free to give thoughts and discussion, if any, in the comment section.
Rossi’s comments today came in response to one of the, as mentioned, everyday impatient readers, who posted the following remark:

“Dear Ing. Rossi,
I read your Journal every day for more than a year now to monitor the advances of your wonderfull discovery. You make us followers sometime enthusiastic but often impatient with your (understandable) reserve in showing what’s happening in your secret lab.
At the time of Pordenone, few weeks ago, you stated that you got the HotCat under full control but it was just a “free” device, that is, without any loading (water to be heated). Then you said that “Tesla dream is close”. And now … BOOOOOM ….. the first 1MW HotCat will be ready in 3 months, and it will be used by a third party in a power plant.
Please tell me what the HotCat will do in the power plant, I mean what its role will be ?
Will it produce electricity or pre-heated fluid ?
If yes will it use a turbine or an unusual heat-electricity converter ?
And, the most important question, does HotCat still need external energy or you get it to self produce its needed energy ?
Please Ing. Rossi don’t answer that these info are confidential. I did not ask anything about the inner behaviour of the HotCat.
I’M and WE ARE SIMPLY SOOOOOO IMPATIENTS…

I appreciate wholeheartedly the enthusiasm of our supporters, but sometime I have the impression that the difficulties we are fighting against are strongly underevaluated, just like to make a LENR industrial apparatus should be a normal thing. If I say that we will make a thing betwen October and November, this does not mean October 1st, could also mean Nov. 30st.
Can also happen that new difficulties raise, so a delay comes up. The NUCLEAR FUSION ( ITER and the likewise) scientists had foreseen to put their plant in operation 20 years ago. After 100 billions of (taxpayer’s) money, they today foresee that perhaps they will have a plant in operation in the next 50 years, after further hundreds of billion dollars, and the scientific context is comfortable with this. Their present target is COP 1.1; we published our work in 2009 ( see Focardi-Rossi paper on this Journal). After 3 years and few millions ( of our private company, no public funding requested, no taxpayer money spent) we are manufacturing ( completely at our risks) plants of 1 MW, one of which will go in operation within February 2013 and will be exposed to the public after a period of operation ( 2-3 months).
The plant will be put in the concern of a major world holding, which has signed with us an extremely important contract. The plant will heat a fluid. No electricity will be produced in the first plant, because the Customer wants to make thermal energy with the forst application,but obviously, due to the high temperature we are now able to reach, the coupling with turbines in a Carnot cycle is possible and will surely be made by the same Customer in the next plants. We still guarantee COP 6, even if the supposition that the COP can be increased is not groundless.
The self sustained mode happens for approximatively the 50% of the operational time, regulated by a new concept remotely governed control system. Well, after all this, somebody talks of infinite delays…well, allow me to say that some scientific context sometimes gives the impression not to be very scientific. We don’t bother, anyway, just work.
As you can see, the answers are not confidential.

It is good to hear that a 1 MW plant is going to be in operation soon. What about the individual home units? When can we expect them? Thanks,
It sounds like he’s going for the big industrial units first, to make it easier for home units to be accepted and certified.. I found a fairly recent comment Rossi made when asked the same question:
“An apparatus working with LENR is difficult to digest for a certifier that has to get the liability to certify such an apparatus to go in apartments where no safety rules will be respected, in many cases. The obstacle will be overcome in time, with good statistics from the industrial plants.
Which of course makes perfect sense.
Rossi is a complete fraud – end of story. Only the scientific illiterates out there believe anything he says.
And you are?
Infinitely more scientifically literate than Mr. Rossi. (with actual Engineering degrees, unlike Mr. Rossi). Have you heard about the degree mill that he claimed a degree from in CA? CA shut it down. Heard about the multiple past frauds from this guy? Do some research.. For those new to this: http://shutdownrossi.com/
Infinitely more scientifically literate than Mr. Rossi and the Wright brothers.
O, now I understand. You are so smart, so “scientifically literate,” that you prefer websites like “shutdownrossi” (http://shutdownrossi.com/), to http://www.journal-of-nuclear-physics.com/. How convincing.
Insulting comments posted with a fake e-mail address, like the one you provided, are not acceptable.
No more unsubstantiated charges of fraud from you will be tolerated here. There are people with much more substantial scientific training than yourself who believe Rossi has something real. Among them is Sven Kullander, a high-ranking member of the Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences. You know, the organization that hands out the Nobel prizes in physics. You, on the other hand, are an anonymous poster that works at a company that makes memory chips. Whether you are really an engineer is anyone’s guess. What I do know is that you are hardly qualified to determine who is scientifically illiterate and who is not.
Gosh, how do we know that, Ben? : )
I have my sources PSI.
I really love costructive comments like ‘ Rossi is a complete fraud – end of story. Only the scientific illiterates out there believe anything he says.’
By the way I think that the next few months will write the end of this story and the beginning of a new one, hopefully a nice one.
Go on Mr. Rossi.
Hear hear, Andy.
1 more Year!
One more year of waiting is what is going on.
Wait until, October. Wait until NEXT October. We really said November. Forget That, we will make a bunch of plants and sell them that nobody can see. We are selling one in February but nobody will be allowed to see that one or the next one or the next one.
Andrea Rossi has never shown a stable or hot ecat despite his claims. He never admitted to stability problems during the first year of demos, but it was implied by others and he lost a 15 million dollar investment from defkalion for failing a 2 day stability test.
Legally Piantelli is ahead of him in a patent race, as we have seen the Rossi rejection and the Piantelli application going forward.
So now Andrea Rossi says to wait for another year before a public plant MIGHT be available for viewing.
Maybe the “Major World Holding” is the club in the wheels. Whatever the hold-ups are it is obvious that the wheels are not moving. So much for a powerful Leonardo Corp.
Best of Luck to Piantelli, Andrea Rossi sucks.
and I am/was a Andrea Rossi supporter……
wait another (insert Swearword of choice here) YEAR!!!
Maybe the world will end in December and put us out of our misery.
We know for a fact Global Warming will run its course before we ever see third party confirmation from Andrea Rossi.
Go Andrea Rossi!
There are certain people who have given themselves enough rope to hang. This dubious pleasure will be worth the wait. Vengeance is a dish best served cold.
Perhaps they might then look with more humility on other discoveries that they have arrogantly despised.
On a sunnier and less vindictive note:
What other discoveries are awaiting newly opened minds?
Let us hope that this lesson is well learned. Open minds will assure us unimaginable wealth, closed minds will ensure we fall victim to exponential growth, misery and extinction.
Good news that Rossi is still working on his e-cats and hot-cats making improvements that will be a better energy reactor. For me, delays due to problem solving, are very common in R&D. The last project I worked on, took three (3) additional years to complete! Rossi will have a commercial ready energy reactor in three or four months. If he doesn’t, I’m sure he will REFUND all the money we invested in his e-Cats! Ha, Ha, Ha.
I tip for the editor – just put up a story about Andrea Rossi and your blog start to drown in comments. Priesthoods of the “right schools” obviously does not like un- ortordox approaches.
The proof will be putting power to the grid, every thing else is just noise.
As for me I hope it works better than hoped for but so far nothing has come to market.
The dog with a bone on his nose knows what might be going on here…
Patience reaps rewards… BLAH!
A moment of thanks for the tenaciousness of … scientists!
I thought I saw something… did you?
Let’s look again…
The ‘Long Cold Fusion Summer’ is now officially over.
An ‘October Surprise’ has passed us by.
A ‘State of the Union Address’ is… LOOMING
Hurricane Sandy….. are blooming.
LONG COLD FUSION SUMMER
….. is such a timeless.
Waiting to make sense
…. really is nerveless.
Watched … a pot… or is it not,
Boiling with fury
Such a rot!
A Thought IS…. What!
We all will inevitably experience…
EVOLUTION THROUGH COLD FUSION
It is sad that “a major world holding” was given this technology before the people… Exactly what Tesla was fighting against. But thats okay because the soveriegn world movement is moving ahead. “He that is within you is geater then he that is in the world..”
I would add to Mr. Rossi’s comment about the 20 yrs of hot fusion development that I have been following the the literature written by members of the hot fusion fraternity since the 1960’s.
