  The Extra Low Energy Antiproton ring (ELENA) is a small ring at CERN which will be built to increase substantially the number of usable (or trappable) antiprotons delivered to experiments for studies with antihydrogen. The report shows the progress in the ELENA design. The choice of optics and ring layout inside of AD hall is given. The main limitations for beam parameters at extraction like intra beam scattering and tune shift due to space charge are discussed. The electron cooler plays key role in ELENA both for efficient deceleration as well as for preparing extracted beam with parameters defined by experiments. The other important systems like beam vacuum, beam instrumentations and others are reviewed as well.

  As the ELENA project is now well underway, focus is turned to the Antiproton Decelerator (AD) itself. Most of the machine’s key components are in operation since more than 25 years and a substantial consolidation program is now being launched in view of continued operation beyond 2025. Over the course of the next few years a progressive consolidation of the AD-Target area, the AD-ring and all associated systems will take place. Several investigations have recently been performed in the target area with the objective of establishing the radiation environment and the sensitivity of the antiproton production to potential misalignment of the production elements. Identification of reliability and serviceability issues of the AD-ring components and associated systems has been done and will continue during the 2013 shut-down. Planned and ongoing consolidation activities are also discussed with emphasis on stochastic and electron beam cooling, instrumentation, RF systems, vacuum, magnets, power converters and beam transfer equipment.
