One year of operation and test activity of the SULTAN test facility at CRPP-Villigen, from October 2008 to October 2009 is reviewed. The main improvements of the facility include a new control system for the cryo-plant and a new electric motor for the helium compressor. The range of operation for the SULTAN samples has been improved in terms of cyclic loading rate. The test campaigns from October 2008 to October 2009 include eight ITER TF conductor samples, two JT60SA samples and a number of other developmental samples. The highlights of the test campaign and the statistical data about cool-downs, warm-ups and test duration are reported. For the eight ITER TF samples, more detail is given about the joint development, the standard test program and the data reduction for the assessment of the results. Eventually, an outlook in the next operation period is also discussed.
