On the 21st of August 2006 the PSI neutron user program started after an extended shut down, in which a new liquid metal target, the MEGAPIE target, was installed. PSI is thereby the first facility World-wide to operate in user mode with a high power liquid metal target. Our first measurements indicate that the estimated gain in neutron flux of 40 % was conservative.
