Defkalion speaks!

Defkalion Green Technologies sent a delegation to Austin for NI Week, and on Wednesday made a presentation about their technology and their upcoming business plans.

I won’t bother to steal e-catworld.com’s thunder.  They wrote up a GREAT article on Defkalion’s presentation.  Please read it!

DGT confirmed that they will be moving their operations to <b>Vancouver, Canada</b>, and their offices will be open for business starting in September.  Yipee! That’s a short-haul flight from me.  I may need to visit yet this year!!!  Oh yea, Defkalion has made A LOT of time schedule promises that they have not kept.  I wonder if they will make it to Vancouver in September, October, November.  Well, maybe 2014.

    I doubt that they would make it up. But one never knows….until one sees proof positive.

    Bruce – I’ve read the presentation and despite mixing up classical physics and quantum physics and W-L theory in their idea of How It Works, they do seem to have a handle on getting it working. I think they’ll be somewhat later than they say for getting into mass-production, though. Maybe the financial guys there don’t fully realise the task involved. Even in a business where you know what needs to be done, such as electronics manufacture, setting up a new board to go down the line takes 3 months to get all the supply lines and processes in place. Here I’d expect around a year and a half, since they aren’t yet at a manufacturable design, reading between the lines. Getting the fuel into mass manufacture would seem to be the most problematic.

    Overall, good news though.

      I do think, however, that moving to Canada is a good idea — personal bias aside.

      The Canadian economy is much better positioned than Greece or USA. Canada is one of the safest places I can think of if/when the government debt crash hits. Canada is more than self-sufficient in food, energy, technical expertise, construction and manufacturing. We have about 1/3 the national debt per capita than the US has.

      Canada probably has more regulations than USA (not by much), but we also very probably have less lead-time in getting technology looked at. I think a company will get more attention from CSA (located in Vancouver) than one would from UL.

      Vancouver is also a good choice. There’s lots of manufacturing capacity in Vancouver. There’s lots of technical expertise in Vancouver. Also, Vancouver is Canada’s gateway to Asia. The Asian community in Vancouver is huge. Setting up any overseas manufacturing from that location is straightforward.

        Possibly also there’s a better work-ethic in Canada, and people are in general more laid-back and so there’d be fewer problems. Canada is only infrequently in the news here – I see this as evidence of it being generally a good place to live and work. News is normally about bad things.

        A good place to choose, agreed. It’s just the timing that’s a bit hurried and seems to be at the wrong time for the business. It’s a little bit of circumstantial evidence that says they aren’t as close to manufacture as they implied.

    Why do cold fusion engineers move operations from Europe to the Americas?

    Does Defkalion intend to keep their commitment to the Greek people… something about basing their operations in Greece… a boon to their economy… jobs in an economic desert… enabling a return to Greek currency… economic independence, etc. etc. etc.

    If not… I’m sorely disappointed.

    The long cold fusion summer is heating up nicely. The transmutation era is is ready to be launched.

    peace be well and happy peace be well and happy peace be well and happy
