HIE-ISOLDE 3rd cryomodule transported to ISOLDE hall

The 3rd HIE-ISOLDE cryomodule is now in its final position in the ISOLDE hall. It was transported on Tuesday the 24th of January as shown in the photo below, courtesy of E. Siesling. It was tough for the transport people due to the freezing conditions. The cryomodule is already on its jacks, the shielding tunnel roof is closed and the alignment done. The rest of the installations will continue as planned thanks to the wonderful work done by Erwin Siesling (installations), Fabio Formenti (planning) and Yacine Kadi(Project leader) as well as all the people in the different installation teams. Exotic beams with up 7.5 MeV/u (A/q = 4.5) are closer now!
