  The peak luminosity achieved during Pb-Pb collisions in the LHC in 2015 (3x1027cm-2s−1) well exceeded the design luminosity and is anticipated to increase by another factor 2 after the next Long Shutdown (2019- 2020). A significant fraction of the power dissipated in ultra-peripheral Pb-Pb collisions is carried by ions from bound-free pair production, which are lost in the dispersion suppressors adjacent to the experimental insertions. At higher luminosities, these ions risk to quench superconducting magnets and might limit their operation due to the dynamic heat load that needs to be evacuated by the cryogenic system. In this paper, we estimate the power deposition in superconducting coils and the magnet cold mass and we quantify the achievable reduction by deviating losses to less sensitive locations or by installing collimators at strategic positions. The second option is considered for the dispersion suppressor next to the ALICE insertion, where a selective displacement of losses to a magnet-free region is not possible.

  The HIE ISOLDE project [1] reached a major milestone in October 2015, with the start of the first physics run with radioactive ion beams. This achievement was the culminating point of intense months during which the first cryomodule of the HIE ISOLDE superconducting Linac and its high-energy beam transfer lines were first installed and subsequently brought into operation. Hardware commissioning campaigns were conducted in order to define the envelope of parameters within which the machine could be operated, to test and validate software and controls, and to investigate the limitations preventing the systems to reach their design performance. Methods and main results of the first commissioning of HIE ISOLDE post accelerator, including the performance of the superconducting cavities with beam, will be reviewed in this contribution.
