  Assembly and tests of the SPIRAL2 superconducting linac's components are now proceeding smoothly. Cryomodules are being processed in CEA Saclay and IPN Orsay, inter-cryomodules "warm" sections in GANIL. While installation of the accelerators components is going on in the new SPIRAL2 building in Caen, installation of the cryomodules will begin during the last quarter of 2013. The latest results of the cryomodules tests as well as the installation strategy are depicted in this paper.

  Officially approved in May 2005, the SPIRAL2 project was launched in July 2005 at GANIL, with the active participation of French laboratories (CEA, CNRS) and international partners. This new facility is composed of a linear accelerator producing deuteron, proton and heavy ion beams in a wide range of energies and intensities, with two dedicated experimental areas in the fields of Neutron for Science (NFS) and very heavy and super heavy element production (S3). In a second step, the facility will also produce Rare elements serving a low energy RIB experimental hall, or post-accelerated by means of the existing cyclotron CIME. This paper presents the performances of the main accelerator components, and the installation process into the SPIRAL2 building.
