In nuSTORM facility pions are injected into the storage ring and a resulting circulating muon beam creates a neutrino flux with a perfectly know flavour content and spectrum. This makes nuSTORM an ideal laboratory to measure precisely neutrino interactions and to search for sterile neutrinos. Moreover, it may also offer to test novel concepts required for a future Muon Collider, like 6D cooling of muon beams, etc. The update of the injection line design and a novel hybrid storage ring design based on a fixed field accelerator (FFA) lattice combined with a production straight containing quadrupoles is presented and its performance is evaluated. Details of a potential implementation at CERN site is also discussed.
