Defkalion Green Technologies claims to have received interest in its Hyperion low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology from as many as 1,000 customers in 78 countries. The company could also make a major announcement about its technology at the 17th International Conference on Cold Fusion (ICCF-17) scheduled for August 12-17 in Daejon, South Korea.
These were among the revelations that an unidentified Defkalion spokesperson made to blogger Peter Gluck. The whole interview is posted at Gluck’s Ego Out blog.
The representative told Gluck that Defaklion is finishing an “industrial prototype” that could be placed into commercial market sometime in 2012. The spokesperson didn’t say when this would happen but noted that Defaklion is scheduled to participate in ICCF-17. That sounds as if Defklalion will finally reveal the results of the third party testing of its devices at the conference.
Defaklion has also received interest from a variety of companies that want to participate in research and development efforts involving Hyperion. No information about Hyperion’s capabilities was unveiled in the blog.
Possible uses for LENR that Defkalion could look into include:
- Light aircraft (this could mean LENR powered jets)
- Turbines to power light aircraft possibly helicopters.
- Generation of electricity
- Steam Turbines
- Automobile Propulsion
- Drying Kilns
- Food and Beverage Manufacturing
- Home Heating
- Industrial Heating
- Production of Industrial Steam
- Water desalination
- Water purification
- Propulsion of ships and boats
- Commercial Heat
- Powering Telecom Towers
- Heating and Cooling of Buildings
The spokesperson also revealed Defkalion’s business plan. The company which is based in Cyprus but maintains facilities in Greece plans to generate most of its income from OEM licensing deals. Under this arrangement Defkalion would choose one company as the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for a particular country or original. That outfit would get the exclusive rights to manufacture and sell Hyperion in that region. The spokesperson did not reveal of any these companies to Gluck.
Each of these licenses will cost €40.5 million ($50.45 million US). For that price the licensee would get to build a factory capable of manufacturing 300,000 Hyperion units a year. The licensee would get a great deal of knowledge about Hyperion projects.
Hyperion will also set up Joint Ventures with specific companies. The purpose of the Joint Ventures would be to develop new applications for LENR. The spokesperson said Defaklion is looking into joint partnerships in the desalination, aircraft, mining, refinery, telecom, cooling and heating and greenhouse sectors. The greenhouse sector could include hydroponics. Defkalion would profit from the Joint Ventures by getting a cut of the gross revenues from any production or sales.
The spokesperson also noted that Defkalion will apply for six patents on its process. He or she did not say when or where they would apply for the patents. From what he or she said the process centers on an industrial secret related to a nickel powder. Defkalion expects a strong industrial espionage effort by unidentified parties trying to get this powder. The powder will be provided to the original equipment manufacturers as part of Defkalion’s licensing deal.
The spokesperson also told Gluck that the LENR market will someday be worth hundreds of billions of dollars. Defkalion also expects to have competition but did not identify the competitors. One of them would presumably be its former partner Andrea Rossi.
Note it would be nice to who at Defkalion Mr. Gluck talked to. On the blog he said he had talked to that person via Skype so he knows who they are. A name for this individual would be nice. Still this is exciting news because it means at least three companies are trying to license LENR, Brillouin, and Andrea Rossi’s Leonardo Corp. Hopefully more firms will jump in so this new energy source can be brought to the world.
