COXINEL (COherent Xray source INferred from Electrons accelerated by Laser) is a European Research Council (ERC) advance grant aims at demonstrating Free Electron Laser amplification at 200 nm with 180 MeV electrons generated by laser plasma acceleration. A special electron beam transfer line with adequate diagnostics has been designed for this project. Strong-focusing variable-field permanent magnet quadrupoles, energy de-mixing chicane and a set of conventional quadrupoles condition the electron beam before its entrance to an In-Vacuum U20 undulator. This presentation describes some of the features incorporated into the design of the magnets, girders, vacuum vessels and diagnostic equipment for this experimental machine. Progress on the equipment preparation and installation is presented as well.
