Abstract : A new experiment devoted to searches for double electron capture in Cd-106 decay is being performed at the Modane underground laboratory (4800 mwe) with the 32-detector TGV-2 spectrometer. The limit T (1/2)(2 nu EC/EC) > 2.0x10(20) yr at a 90%confidence level (C.L.) was obtained from a preliminary analysis of data obtained over 2250 h of measurements with about 23.2 g sample enriched in the isotope Cd-106 to 99.57%. The limits T (1/2)(KL, 2741 keV) > 0.9 x 10(20) yr and T (1/2)(KK, 2718 keV) a parts per thousand << 1.4 x 10(20) yr at a 90% C.L. on the neutrinoless decay of Cd-106 were obtained from measurements performed with the Obelix low-background spectrometer from high-purity germanium (HPGe spectrometer) for a sample of mass about 23.2 g enriched in the isotope Cd-106.
