As part of the ongoing Physics Beyond Collider studies, initial beam tests with PSI beams have been executed at CERN. On 25 July 2018 lead ions with one remaining electron (208Pb⁸¹⁺) were injected and accelerated in the LHC for the first time. After establishing the injection and circulation of a few 208Pb⁸¹⁺ bunches, beam lifetimes of about 50 hours could be established at 6.5 TeV proton equivalent energy. This paper describes the setup of the beam tests and observations made.
