Top and bottom coils in 20 of the 40 SDR dipoles have now been replaced
This is both ahead of schedule and twice as many as we planned for this downtime.
MFD is winding dipole trim coils for spares inventory and LTR's and RTL's installation.
Winding of remaining dipole coils has been paused while
MFD winds DR quadrupole coils to replace ones with damaged terminal blocks.
Winding of remaining dipole coils should resume in time for the September downtime.
So far 3 SDR quadrupoles have been refurbished (12 coils) with new coils, terminal blocks and bridge connections.

The current quantities of Damping Ring coils is:
QF coils: 3 magnets
QD coils: 3 magnets
QD Trims: 7 magnets
Bend Coils: 7 coils
Bend Trims: 14 coils
One of the radiation
damaged sextupoles had to be removed from the NDR when the vacuum
chamber was removed for repair.
