Abstract: 300 mA beam in the Diamond Light Source storage ring is presently maintained by two 500 MHz superconducting (SC) CESR-B cavities. Cavity reliability is acceptable at voltages up to 1.4 MV per cavity but falls off rapidly above. Installation of extra cavities would reduce the voltage demand on the current cavities and also the operating power level of the amplifiers, with commensurate improvement in reliability. Furthermore, two recent SC cavity failures have resulted in machine down-time and reduced-current operation, and repair has proven to be prolonged and expensive. It is therefore planned to install two normal conducting (NC) cavities into the ring to support operation of the SC cavities and to act as a safeguard against any future SC cavity failures. Details are presented in this paper of plans and p
