  The TRIUMF Advanced Rare Isotope Laboratory (ARIEL) is funded since 2010 June by federal and BC Provincial governments. In collaboration with the University of Victoria, TRIUMF is proceeding with construction of a new target building, connecting tunnel, rehabilitation of an existing vault to contain the electron linear accelerator, and a cryogenic compressor building. TRIUMF starts construction of a 300 keV thermionic gun, and 10 MeV Injector cryomodule (EINJ) in 2012; the designs being complete. The 25 MeV Accelerator Cryomodule will follow in 2013. TRIUMF is embarking on major equipment purchases and has signed contracts for 4K cryogenic plant and a 290kW CW klystron, and four 1.3 GHz Nb 9-cell cavities from a local Canadian supplier. Moreover, the low energy beam transport is under construction; and detailing of two intra-cryomodule beam transports has just begun. Procurements are anticipated in mid 2012 for (i) the entire facility quadrupole magnets, and (ii) the klystron's 600kW HV power supply.

  The completion of an optimised SRF cryomodule for application on ERL accelerators has now culminated with the successful assembly of an integrated cryomodule, following an intensive 5 years of development evolution. The cryomodule, which incorporates 2 x 7-cell 1.3 GHz accelerating structures, 3 separate layers of magnetic shielding, fully adjustable & high power input couplers and fast piezo tuners, has been installed on the ALICE ERL facility at Daresbury Laboratory. It is intended that this will permit operational optimisation for maximised efficiency demonstration, through increased Qext adjustment whilst retaining both effective energy recovery and IR-FEL lasing. The collaborative design processes employed in completing this new cryomodule development are explained, along with the assembly and implementation procedures used to facilitate its successful installation on the ALICE ERL facility.
