Five Star cooling for new Sky studios
BSkyB’s brand new sustainable landmark broadcast facility features a revolutionary air conditioning system from cooling and heating specialist Star Refrigeration.
BSkyB is a leading broadcaster of sports, movies, entertainment and news. The company operates the UK’s largest digital pay TV platform from its headquarters in Isleworth, London.
Star has supplied five of its state-of-the-art Indigochiller refrigeration plants to provide cooling within Sky’s new Sky Studios building. The groundbreaking facility will provide TV studios, technical and post production space for Sky.
Five air cooled Indigochiller units, each with a 1MW cooling capacity, have been installed on the roof of the new building. Each Indigochiller provides chilled water, which is then pumped through insulated pipework to air handling units (AHUs). These AHUs will provide comfort cooling throughout the Sky Studios building, as well as some computer server cooling.
