Abstract
The first European ALMA production antenna is in the final stage of manufacturing and pre-assembly. Precommissioning of parts of this antenna will start soon. The series production is partly ongoing or in the final stage of preparation. Design features of the European ALMA antennas w.r.t. to manufacturing, assembly and integration in Europe and on site, the status of the manufacturing works and pre-commissioning are presented. An outlook to the next steps of the realization of the antennas is given.
