In order to increase the duty factor (d.f.) of the present 500 MeV electron linac from 2.5 % to > 90 %, it is proposed to add a pulse stretcher to the facility. By replacing 4 of the 12 existing 4 MW klystrons by 25 MW types, the injection energy will be increased to E = 700 MeV. A peak current of 40 mA will be injected during three turns with 365 pps. to yield an extracted beam current of 40 ¿A. The machine operates near a third order resonance. The chromaticity is non-zero. Extraction proceeds by changing the cavity frequency (2856 MHz); this will push the beam into the unstable region of the phase space. An energy compressor will reduce the momentum spread of the injected beam to ¿dp/p¿ = 0.1 %.
