  The Extra Low Energy Antiproton ring (ELENA) is a small 30 m circumference synchroton under construction at CERN to further decelerate antiprotons from the Antiproton Decelerator AD from 5.3 MeV to 100 keV. Controlled deceleration in a synchrotron equipped with an electron cooler to reduce emittances in all three planes will allow the existing AD experiments to increase substantially their antiproton capture efficiencies and render new experiments possible. Installation of the machine and lines needed for the commissioning of the ring are ongoing and commissioning is expected to start around mid-2016. The aim is to complete ELENA ring commissioning in November followed by the installation of new electrostatic transfer lines to existing experiments until autumn 2017. Status of ELENA installations and preparations for commissioning will be reported.
