There are many proposals for the construction of proton linacs with beam power up to 200 MW for various applications (energy production, nuclear waste transmutation, etc.). In Russia there is a discussion of the necessity for the construction of a proton linac which must exceed the beam power by one order of magnitude with respect to the existing linacs. Such a linac must produce a 1 GeV energy beam with a 3 mA average current. The existing facility in the Institute for Nuclear Research allows an upgrade of the linac for the acceleration of a higher intensity beam. The facility consists of a high intensity proton linac and an experimental area. The latter has been constructed for the transportation of several high intensity beams inside a 200 mm aperture beamline. Therefore it can be safely used for the transportation of a very high power beam to the target. For the production of a 3 mA beam it is proposed to extend the duty factor of the linac up to 6%. The accelerating structure above 200 MeV must be replaced by a superconducting structure operating at 594.6 MHz. The surface field of 17 MV/m in the superconducting structure provides acceleration of protons up to 1 GeV over the length of the existing linac
