Capsule upgrade
 (голосов: 0)
Capsule upgradeIn May 2009 the EDF Energy London Eye announced a £12.5 million upgrade to the 32 capsules, to enhance the visitor experience and improve the longevity and sustainability of the UK's number one paid-for visitor attraction.

The procedure will be completed in time for the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympic Games.

The upgrade involves removing the capsules one by one, ferrying them down the River Thames, and then on to a workshop in Worcester, where the heating and ventilation systems are enhanced to improve efficiency and environmental performance, as part of their support for a lower carbon future.

This significant investment ensures that no major maintenance works will be necessary on the capsules for the next 15-20 years.
