EEStor New Facilities

I have it on good authority that EEStor has identified and will be moving to new facilities that are between 200-300 acres. Where, when, etc? Do NOT know. The source is intimately knowledgeable about EEStor. It is second hand information however...but again, from a trusted source.

Can your trusted source confirm a working prototype?

200 to 300 acres sounds to small for a manufacturing facility, but about right for a Corporate HQ.

the source in question is as knowledgeable as they come. but the conversation I'm referencing did not allow for alot of in depth questions...very very brief.

tom, the context was actually in relation to HQ because the source said, "we're moving" ...

..since I didnt hear it myself, i'm adding disclaimers to this but the person who told me is someone i trust.

Hi mrjerry,

It's quite likely ZENN is preparing for further investment, which is a prudent thing to do. If it has obligations to invest when certain benchmarks are reached, and if those benchmarks are reached, it's a good idea to have this capital on hand to exploit the opportunity. It's possible, if we purely speculate, that ZENN has been given advance notice of positive permittivity results, but again -- pure speculation. We'll just have to sit tight and wait. I haven't heard anything from either corner, though I have heard that Weir is looking to expand production lines because he needs to ramp up output to meet what I suppose will be strong demand for a commercial production. Perhaps ZENN is going to use these funds to make a further investment. We'll have to wait and see.

200 to 300 acres is plenty of land for a goodly manufacturing plant. The Raytheon plant I used to work at sat on almost the same footprint and made all manner of defense hardware on multiple assembly lines with plenty of room left over for cubicle farms and parking. If they are buying this much land, it can only be viewed as a positive sign.

200-300 acres "sounds small" for manufacturing? You kidding me? Do you really understand how much land that is!? It's enough. As the previous poster attested. (I'm a different "B" than the blog owner. Need to fix that...)

200-300 acres would be a huge facility.

Sorry, I was joking. I grew up on a farm of 350 acres so I know exactly how much land that is. And yes 200 to 300 acres would be a big place.
