The ISIS First Target Station (TS1) has now been operating for over 30 years. During this period, there has been no significant work carried out to maintain or develop the internals of TS1. The ISIS First Target Station project aims to refurbish much of TS1 to ensure its continued operation for many years into the future.
We have been exploring the feasibility of doing this over the past couple of years. We are now wanting to move the project to an implementation phase. The main work of the project, to refurbish the target station, is likely to be carried out in 2020-2021, and will result in a year’s shutdown for TS1. A full description of the First Target Station Project can be found in the Update for ISIS Users – February 2016 document.
If you have comments or questions on the project, please contact Sean Langridge or Philip King at ISIS.
