  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.
