NTSB seeks more Dreamliner lithium-ion battery tests

Boeing Co. may be rushing to install battery fixes in order to get 787 Dreamliners back in the air, but that doesn’t mean the National Transportation Safety Board is satisfied.

The NTSB is preparing to pay up to $55,000 for additional CT scans of 787 lithium-ion batteries, a project it wants to have completed by May 16.

“Since the Federal Aviation Administration has recently approved a plan intended to result in the Boeing 787 being approved for a return to service, the information from these tests (and the CT scans required to support these tests) is needed as soon as possible,” said a “sources sought notice” from the NTSB.

The new contract is essentially an extension of an existing $49,000 contract with Chesapeake Defense Services Inc., which has less than $1,000 left in the account, said NTSB spokesman Eric Weiss.
