The High Energy LHC (HE-LHC) is one option for a next generation hadron collider explored in the FCC-hh programme. The core concept of the HE-LHC is to install FCC-hh technology magnets in the LHC tunnel. The higher beam rigidity and the increased radiation debris, however, impose severe challenges on the design of the triplet for the low beta insertions. In order to achieve 25 cm beta* optics and survive a lifetime integrated luminosity of 10/ab a new longer triplet was designed that provides sufficient shielding and enough beam stay clear. This triplet has been designed using complimentary radiation studies to optimise the shielding. The optics for the rest of the interaction region had to be adjusted in order to host this more rigid beam and longer triplet whilst leaving enough room for crab cavities. Moreover, the effects non-linear errors in this longer and stronger triplet have on the dynamic aperture together with techniques how these can be mitigated will be outlined. An alternative flat beam optics will also be presented.
