The IFMIF-EVEDA* Linear IFMIF Prototype Accelerator (LIPac) is a 9 MeV, 125 mA CW deuteron accelerator to validate the technology to be used in the future IFMIF accelerator. The acceleration of deuterons will be done through two stages. The matching between them will be done in the Medium Energy Beam Transport line (MEBT). In this section, the transverse focusing of the beam is carried out by five quadrupole magnets with integrated steerers, grouped in one triplet and one doublet**. These magnets have been designed by CIEMAT, and manufactured by the Spanish company ANTECSA. After manufacturing, they were fully characterized at ALBA-CELLS magnetic measurements facility. In this paper we describe the characterization bench used to measure the magnets, the measurement protocol and the alignment procedure, as well as the results obtained and the iteration process followed in order to shim the magnets to fulfill with beam dynamics requirements.

  The International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility (IFMIF) aims to provide an accelerator-based, D-Li neutron source to produce high energy neutrons at sufficient intensity and irradiation volume for DEMO materials qualification. Part of the Broader Approach (BA) agreement between Japan and EURATOM, the goal of the IFMIF/EVEDA project is to work on the engineering design of IFMIF and to validate the main technological challenges which, among a wide diversity of hardware includes the LIPAC (Linear IFMIF Prototype Accelerator), a 125 mA CW deuteron accelerator up to 9 MeV mainly designed and manufactured in Europe. The aim of this paper is to address the engineering issues of the MEBT and SRF linac related to assembly and Integration at LIPAc facility, focusing in the seismic analysis of the beamlines to ensure the robustness of the equipment and the alignment activities with the cutting edge technology performed in Europe before sending the components to Rokkasho. These activities are essential before starting the installation process of the MEBT in the first half of 2016, and to initiate the assembly and integration of the SRF Linac cryomodule in the next phase.
