  The gamma beam system of the European ELI-NP proposal foresees the use of a multi-bunch train colliding with a high intensity recirculated laser pulse. The linac energy booster is composed of 14 travelling wave C-Band structures, 1.8 m long with a field phase advance per cell of 2π/3 and a repetition rate of 100 Hz. Because of the multi-bunch operation, the structures have been designed with a damping of the HOM dipoles modes in order to avoid beam break-up (BBU). In the paper we discuss the design criteria of the structures also illustrating the effectiveness of the damping in the control of the BBU. Prototype activity is finally illustrated.
