The upgrade included the removal of the old rotating lens and transfer of the Mercury which was in the lens acting as a floating cushion for the rotating Lens, into a UN Approved Transfer Container and subsequent transfer of the mercury to an EU approved site for treatment and storage in compliance with the EU Transfrontier Shipment of Waste Legislation.
