BISANCE Project Update 2022


Charleroi, Belgium


January 6, 2023

Calyos has provided a second project update in regard to the status of the EU funded BISANCE project.

Calyos has produced the attached video to provide the latest project update in regard to the status of the EU funded BISANCE project. The video highlights a reduced scale demonstrator that has been tested in Calyos' laboratory to validate the performance of the system with the Sonaca's carbon fiber composite panel technology.

Summary of the context and overall objectives of the project.

The project intends to test in icing wind tunnel (IWT) one demonstrator of engine air intake integrated in a nacelle and equipped with an innovative biphasic heat transport system for regenerating the energy from the oil of the engine. The objective, by testing the technology in a representative environment, is to reach TRL5. At the end of the project the technology will be able to be further developed towards TRL6 to 9 with the final aim to be transferred to the aeronautic value chain.
A paper will be presented by Vincent DUPONT at the joint 21st International Heat Pipe Conference and 15th International Heat Pipe Symposium in Melbourne, Australia in February. A full scale demonstrator will be tested in February with Airbus Defence and Space team (topic leader).
