There has been constant assertions that Rossi is a fraud and scam artist.
Russian Prof Parkhomov has recently claimed to have replicated the Rossi E-Cat. Parkhomov and published fully open research. Others are racing to replicate and extend the work.
JC Renoir posted these questions, and Rossi provided the answers.
Q: Can you say now if the 1 MW plant is working? A: Yes
Q: Is it already producing heat in the factory of the Customer? A: Yes
Q: Is the Customer making its production using the heat made by the 1 MW plant? A: Yes
There is an andrea rossi website with newer pictures of the newer 1 MW plants. (H/T NBF reader Alainco)
Can you say now if the 1 MW plant is working? Is it already producing heat in the factory of the Customer ? Is the Customer making its production using the heat made by the 1 MW plant?
Now, months after when you said the first time it has been delivered, I hope you can answer to this.
In other comments Rossi talks about a one year endurance and reliability test. The customer is using the 1 Megawatt in a factory or process while it is in the one year endurance testing phase.

The ECAT 1MW plant contains 106 smaller ECAT units mounted in a shipping container. Valve for filling the Hydrogen is on the front of each unit, together with electrical connection to the immersion heater used to start the reaction.
Production and Manufacturing plans ertr under way 2013. Current delivery time was estimated to be four months. Warranty for functionality is two years with a guaranteed COP of 6, and the plant has an expected life span of 30 years.
The ECAT 1MW plant is constructed inside an international standardized 20ft container which can easily be transferred between different modes of transportation (e.g. ships, air cargo, trains and trucks).
The plant consists of small parallel modules. Each reactor contains three cores and consumes small amounts of treated Nickel powder and Hydrogen gas (under pressure, approx. 15 bar). The plant is recharged by specially trained and certified personnel.
