Yes, you'll need 24v batteries for the Moviecam SL. Anton Bauer, Hawk Woods, and BlockBattery make both on-board batteries and block batteries in 24v. Since you're in London, maybe go with Hawk Woods?

I would have them make you a custom battery plate with a 24v regulated output, the Moviecams from what I've been told don't like voltages much higher than that. There is a user replaceable fuse. And I would have them double check the pin-out of your camera with a volt meter before they make up your cable, you don't want to get that wrong. Sounds like your camera has a modified power connector, the originals were 4-pin XLR 24v (yes, non-standard).
