ENEA is engaged in the realisation of a 12 T wind and react Nb(3)Sn coil, a subsize magnet designed to simulate many technological problems in NET-ITER magnets. EM-LMI and Ansaldo are the industrial partners in this project. A preliminary winding has been built and successfully tested. This winding has been cut into pieces and carefully inspected to make sure that the impregnation process after the heat treatment works. No particular flaws have been detected. The 12 T magnet was manufactured in about three months. Heat treatment, impregnation and electrical tests at 300 K have been performed successfully and the magnet is now ready for final tests. In order to obtain the most significant scientific and technological information from this magnet, the original test programme (insertion of the coil in the SULTAN facility) has been modified according to a decision of the Fusion Technology Steering Committee (FTSC) of Euratom. Details of the new test programme are given.
