Within the LAOLA Collaboration, the University of Hamburg and DESY work closely together to combine university research with the expertise of a large and well-established accelerator facility. In this talk we will introduce the recently commissioned 200 TW laser system ANGUS. We will report on the integration of the laser system into the accelerator infrastructure, in particular about requirements for the air conditioning and demands for the vacuum system. Important characteristic laser parameters will be discussed as well as the progress towards stable operation. We will present results on measured energy stability, pulse duration and temporal intensity contrast as well as wave front distortion and pointing stability.
