FIES is a cross-dispersed high-resolution echelle spectrograph at the 2.56 m Nordic Optical Telescope (NOT), and was optimised for throughput and stability in 2006. The major 2006 upgrade involved the relocation of FIES to a stable environment and development of a fiber bundle that offers 3 different resolution modes, and made FIES an attractive tool for the user community of the NOT. Radial-velocity stability is achieved through double-chamber active temperature control. A dedicated data reduction tool, FIEStool, was developed. As a result of these upgrades, FIES is now one of the work-horse instruments at the NOT. ((c) 2014 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim)
