KM3NeT is a multi-site detector devoted to the detection and study of cosmic neutrinos and their sources in the Universe, and to the measurement of the neutrino oscillation parameters. Two underwater detectors are under construction in the Mediterranean Sea, ARCA (Portopalo di Capo Passero, Italy) and ORCA (Toulon, France), optimised respectively for neutrinos in the energy range of 1 TeV–100 PeV and 10 GeV–10 TeV. The mass construction of the detectors has started, and a long-term plan for the completion is in place. At the time of writing this article, 21 (14) detection units are already in operation in the ARCA (ORCA) site from a total of 230 (115). In these proceedings, the major milestones achieved for the construction of the ARCA telescope are discussed. The main physics results obtained with ARCA, in its partial configurations are reported. Finally, an overview of the expected performances of the full detectors will be given.
