12 GeV UpgradeHall B is prepping for the installation of the Torus magnet support legs. Up to this point, the Torus assembly has been taking place with the Torus on a “spit.” This allowed for rotation of the magnet, which increased efficiency and safety during this phase of construction. The legs are the permanent support and will be installed in the near future. Hall C continues incremental testing and measurements of the horizontal bend (HB) magnet. This activity is part of the final acceptance tests of this superconducting magnet.
