Cutting costs and emissions with a hybrid solution
Our client, a tv and film production company, needed to ensure a Covid-secure environment for 60 cast and crew members during a three-week shoot in a rural setting.
In addition to requiring power in the areas where cast and crew would sleep and eat, the client wanted to reduce noise in the accommodation areas to enhance the wellbeing of all those on set. Curbing the carbon footprint and adhering to a busy shooting schedule with no interruptions due to refuelling were equally important for the customer.
A seamless turnkey solution
Woodlands provided a hybrid energy system comprising generators plus energy storage systems; this allowed the client to reduce fuel usage and CO2 emissions. Our recommended set-up also provided a no-noise sleeping environment for cast and crew members. The fuel-efficient solution avoided any downtime for refuelling which meant the shoot went ahead with zero interruptions.
In addition to the low-noise, fuel-efficient system hire, we provided expert support to ensure the hybrid system served the clients needs throughout the three-week period . All ancillary equipment and transport was provided by Woodlands. Our engineers went on site to set up, connect and test the equipment, liaising with the location facilities manager to ensure the client felt confident and supported. At the end of the hire period, the Woodlands team disconnected all equipment, ensuing a seamless experience for the client from start to finish.
