A forum poster on Vortex-1 nicknamed “Aussie Guy E-Cat” claims he has obtained devices from an Asian source that he plans to use to demonstrate that Fleischmann and Pons were correct in their cold fusion claims.
He claims that he has two cells on loan for a 3 month period. The source will work remotely with his local university to get them operational. He states that they output greater than 1 watt with a COP greater than 5. The university intends to publish the results from the cells created locally. The source has received an up-front payment and will receive further funding as the cells are proven to work. They will also receive a further payment when the replicant cells become operational.
“Aussie Guy” plans to make the replicant cells available to other researchers. These cells are not capable of delivering a E-Cat or Hyperion level of performance. They are designed purely to prove that Fleischmann and Pons were correct and to finally silence the critics. If this could be accomplished this would accelerate the acceptance of the technology and the development of new greener energy products.
“Aussie Guy” also claims that he hoped to purchase a 100 kW E-Cat plant from Andrea Rossi, but Rossi was not willing to sell a scaled-down large plant. Aussie Guy subsequently sought an alternative source for small-scale devices to demonstrate the reality of cold fusion. The fact that he is working with a local (Australian) university will be of interest to the many people who have been hoping for independent third party testing of cold fusion devices by qualified scientists. The long-term plan is for the manufacture of simple demonstration devices that can be sold to the wider market.
Although the sceptics will not be impressed by further gossip from forums with no identification or clarification this has the potential to develop into an interesting story. It shows that the interest in the area of cold fusion research is greater than ever and that has to be good news for all who are hoping to see the emergence of a new energy source in the months ahead.
