Abstract After 20 years of successful ISOLDE operation at the PS-Booster*, a major upgrade of the facility, the HIE-ISOLDE (High Intensity and Energy ISOLDE) project was launched in 2010. It is divided into three parts; a staged upgrade of the REX post-accelerator to increase the beam energy from 3.3 MeV/u to 10 MeV/u using a super-conducting linac, an evaluation of the critical issues associated with an increase in proton-beam intensity and a machine design for an improvement in RIB quality. The latter two will be addressed within the HIE-ISOLDE Design Study. This presentation aims to provide an overview of the present status of the overall project by providing; an insight to the infrastructure modifications, installation and tests of the HEBT lines as well as progress on the commissioning of the SC linac. Plans for the second phase of the project will be highlighted.
