Defkalion Announcement: May Include Testing / Certification by Independent Third Parties

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Defkalion Green Technologies (DGT) will make a big announcement tomorrow (Wednesday) following many weeks of build up and anticipation.

Yesterday on their forum Defkalion posted:

"Dear all,
We will release the expected info pre-announced on November 14th 2011, on
Wednesday, November 30th 2011."
Thank you for your attention
Defkalion GT"

What to expect then?  Well, based on their own statements we can hazard a guess at:
Third party testing and certification of Hyperions underway, perhaps even positive results from a credible third party. More documentation including Final product specifications and probably some photos.
Initially, Defkalion had been working closely with Andrea Rossi on an ambitious commercial project to roll-out eCat fusors to the masses.  The plans included a factory working at full capacity producing 300,000 Hyperions (DGT Name For Their eCat Fusor), with plans for additional factories and research facilities in Greece.

That is until the relationship soured with Rossi citing financial issues as the cause of the breakdown in relations. Defkalion countered with accusations that Rossi did not "meet parameters such as the stable operation of the device for at least 48 hours".

Defkalion seem very confident launching their Hyperion technology, while Rossi has been adamant that Defkalion do not know the industrial secret in order to successfully manufacture and produce the reactor cores.  The industrial secret being the method of preparation and treatment of the powdered Nickel with an as yet undisclosed "secret" catalyst.

When you look at everything that has happened since January, Defkalion have sensibly bowed out of getting involved in name calling and the media circus that surrounds Rossi and have maintained quite a professional stance since they first came on the scene.

One of their first statements was very positive indeed and also seemed to imply that Rossi's was not the only technology they were working with when they said Defkalion has: "Enhanced technology and engineering on Rossi’s invention or similar inventions".

On October 10th they made the following statement:

The technological breakthrough of LENR (or CANR) is no longer speculation. It is a fact that will eventually change the world’s energy problems and its sociopolitical divides through cheap, clean and green energy. The world needs LENR as a new energy source. Although change will not happen over-night, LENR will help reduce CO2 emissions, lower the cost of energy, and provide longevity to our planet’s energy needs.

Defkalion sees its role with responsibility and asks the community at large to continue its support.

Defkalion has:
• Enhanced technology and engineering on Rossi’s invention or similar inventions
• Prepared business models for international expansion
• Established a strong network of global contacts
• Prepared legislative and certification procedures
• Ensured national, regional and international network in politics and business
• Prepared global financing

Defkalion has worked in close partnership with Andrea Rossi for a very long time to prepare a commercially viable and industrially applicable product using his invention. Defkalion invested a lot of money to evolve Rossi’s E-Cat lab prototype into its Hyperion product. Defkalion is now at the stage where its industrial prototype is ready for production.

More recently they produced this press release which features pictures of Hyperion prototypes and of the inside of their workshop.

Soon after they clarified some of the points made in the press release:

"We have to clarify that two of the pictures in our November 14th Press Release are from a low-end Hyperion single reactor pre-industrial version7 prototype. Several components on it (isolations, security components, anti-explosive protection, casing, functional I/O etc) have been deliberately omitted."

"Final products for mass production, that will be released following their prototypes certification, do have some minor differences in engineering/architecture and their assembly quality. A full specs sheet as well as product's basic design and their scheduled third party testing will be released as per our announcement of November 14th.
Thank you"

More recently an article with Defkalion's Alexander Xanthoulis in Greek publication Tovima shed more light on developments with Defkalion painting themselves as having a more stable and advanced product than Rossi. The article has been through Google translate, so as always some of the meaning is lost in translation.

“We not only continue our program and we are almost ready, with technology that precedes that of Rossi during a year. Specifically, within the next 15 days there will be announcements and initiated testing and certification by independent third parties. We will present the final product – not just a laboratory prototype – with all its subsystems to operate according to European safety standards. ”

“All the technology used in devices at the Hyperion KW and systems 1 to 5MW are our own design – different from those of Rossi” he replied. “As for the control, was already our own design and construction, and Mr. Rossi has signed acceptance certificate shows that it is ours. Even in the recent trial in October when he used some modules of our own design. However, the main and big difference in our device than that of Rossi is that our system is stable in performance, while that of Rossi or the last test failed to yield stable for more than five and a half hours. ”

So the rift between you was not due only to non-payment of first installment repayment, said Mr. Rossi?

“Not sure. We had finished the 15 million dollars of first dose, but Mr. Rossi did not sign the protocol of receipt, asking him to meet parameters such as the stable operation of the device for at least 48 hours. This was the real cause of the  interruption of cooperation, but not celebrated in the media because they want to continue a deleterious confrontation. Us us interested in real progress, and this success. The technology will present a few days the world will be entirely Greek and appreciate its contribution to the overthrow of what exists in the energy market. “

One rather positive outcome in all this is for neutrals is that despite the cavernous differences of opinion between all of the parties, Defkalion, Rossi and even Piantelli and Krivit - they all agree that the LENR phenomena is real.  This fact alone should give sleepless nights to even the most determined pseudosceptics.

It is possible that this announcement by Defkalion will be relatively tame, but  I don't expect that to be the case. There is a small, but nevertheless potential possibility that If Defkalion have progressed far enough to announce positive independent test results from a well-respected third party then this whole thing could go supernova overnight. Whether tomorrow is that day or many weeks away I have a strong feeling we ain't seen nothin yet.

A smattering of mainstream media exposure so far is nothing compared to the what is coming down the line.

I wouldn't expect third party certification: "... there will be announcements and initiated testing and certification by independent third parties."

Note "initiated," this likely means no results. While initiated would be a very positive sign, it again leaves us in a state of not knowing if the product works as claimed. Hopefully they will surprise me, but all they promised was an announcement. Big whoop.

Let me point out that Defkalion's rumored R&D technological progress is indicative of what we can expect on a range of integration fronts when LENR is an acknowledged successfully commercialized feat.

For instance, home furnaces, portable generators, ship turbines, desalination plants, and hotel water heaters are just some of the applications that beg an R&D budget.
