I agree to your statement - give them some time before we ask too many questions. 

Concerning you statement about Ankur - in the summer 2010 I visited 13 gasifiers in Srilanka - 5 of them Ankur - none was working when I was there - they told me that they needed a rebuild of the hot zone every 2-3 weeks. 
I also visited a gasifier from TERI - it have had 2-3 hours operation before the engine exploded and it was never put back in operation. To me it looked like they had never build a gasifier before. 
Of the 13 gasifier 3 was in operation - and one producing electricity.

We find that the ones that are actually running all seem to be pricy. While we get estimates and budget quotes for 0.5-1 MWe systems at $4,000-$6,000/kWe, the ones that are actually running at 2MWe are $8,000-$10,000/kWe. The exceptions are the Sakata and Ankur gasifiers in Thailand.
