Combined heat and power technology is to be deployed at the new Pentland film and television studios in Scotland.

The £250m facilityPentland Studios with combined heat and power technology, as well as studios and stages, will also feature a data center and workshop areas.

The site will also be powered by a dedicated 100MW gas-fired combined heat and power (CHP) plant.

Located near to the facility will be a satellite up-link “enabling productions to securely transfer or transmit rushes, clips or entire programs for editing and viewing purposes around the globe.”

The studios are expected to be ready for operation by late 2018.
