I provided this link a week ago in the a.net GA
forum. Maybe it made its way to Twitter from there???
Page #13 is interesting, especially:
- Independence of cells / cooling areas between cells
- Venting areas within the battery
- Specific venting outside the battery/aircraft when relevant
If this Airbus safety conference had taken place today, and not almost a year ago, then these things would have created a lot of questions from the audience.
But Airbus is silent today. I understand that.
But last week an Airbus spokesman (not JL
) did comment hard pressed by Reuters. He said that the A350 containment system was more robust, and they believe it would pass certification without issues. But in case certification conditions got changed, then the A350 would be modified accordingly, which would involve a potential delay depending on the circumstances.
