The Derby plant provides steam to the Rolls Royce Sinfin site.[1] Whitetower Energy sold it, along with four other gas plants, to Rockland Capital in 2019.[2]

In 2021 the project applied for 50 MW existing generation in the T-4 Capacity Market 2024-2025 auction.[3] This would qualify them for government subsidies to guarantee electricity supply.[4]
