Dear Dr. Rossi,
As gas turbines (in combination with alternators) at the moment are used to deliver/cover the peak load of the electricity production (at the moment with a higher cost for the thus produced electricity), and as the need of these peak load units rises with the increasing use of renewable energy sources (like wind and solar), thus stabilizing the grid (maintaining the frequency to the wanted value), the use of the E-cat SK in combination with a gas turbine and an alternator is a very smart solution, also because you will deliver the peak load electricity with a much reduced price! Congratulations to you and your team.

Of course this is of no interest to the babblers who are more excited by pointless speculation about who writes the comments om JONP.
Electricity from a LENR turbine should be cheaper than solar or wind as well as being available continuously.
It also implies that the difficult problem of heat transfer from the SK has at least been partially solved.
Adrian - since you seem so well skilled in engineering, even in the area of gas turbines: may I ask you to enlighten the audience here how in hell Rossi might redesign such a turbine to make his SKat fit into such an existing industrial device? Shall his SKat replace the gas ignition parts to save the fuel? Probably a hard one, since even very hot air from his SKat remains hot air, without the ability to multiply pressure and volume to run this machine without combustion by ignition of high pressure gas-air-oxygen.... If Rossi has been able to come up with a newly designed gas turbine running on SKats, made in his garage workshop within a couple of weeks, he will for sure write history. Looking forward to this new gadget.
