TRIUMF (Vancouver) and VECC (Kolkata) have been engaged in a collaboration on superconducting electron linacs since 2008. The motivation for the collaboration was to support initiatives at both labs, ARIEL at TRIUMF and ANURIB at VECC, to augment the respective radioactive ion beam (RIB) programs with the addition of a high intensity electron linac driver to produce RIBs through photo-fission. The common linac architecture is based on five 1.3GHz nine-cell SRF cavities housed in three

A ARIEL e-linac demonstrator with two cold cavities in two modules successfully accelerated beam to 20MeV. Recently the VECC 10MeV injector cryomodule was commissioned with beam. A summary of the ICM design and results of the commissioning will be presented.
