The production of intense radioactive beams requires a high power target, an efficient beam selection and transport, safe operations and a reliable-cost effective facility. The SPIRAL 2 project a so called second generation RIB facility is under construction at GANIL. The low energy RIB’s will be produced by neutron induced fissions obtained from a 40 MeV primary beam (deutons) and a graphit convertor. Several issues must be addressed in order to insure the safety rules and ultimately the performances requested by the scientific programme. Among them, the space charge dominated regime during the extraction of the beam after the target and the ion source, the compromise between beam transmission, rejection of the light-ion beam, and management of the main safety features. Most of the investigations currently in progress are devoted to the nuclear engineering, the maintenance and the multi-scale integration of the segmented beam line with the infrastructure.
