In 1993 a multinational study group started to evaluate the feasibility for a next generation pulsed European Spallation Neutron Source (ESS) [1] . The beam is specified to have an average power of 5 MW at the target point with a repetition rate of 50 Hz. The final energy of the accelerated negative Hydrogen ions is 1334 MeV. The high energy part of the accelerator will consist of 168 5-cell cavities arranged in 7 groups in the beta range from 0.37 to 0.91. For the high beta cavities a

The objective is to study the performance of the cavity and the cryomodule. The completed module will be delivered ready for cryogenic RF testing at
