In 2017, Downing funds acquired Rossington Power Limited, a 4MW gas fired generation site near Doncaster to facilitate the construction of the plant. The site has been operational since November 2018.
The site comprises four 1MW Siemens (Guascor) gas reciprocating engines that benefit from 15-year Capacity Market contracts that ensure security of supply to the UK in times of shortage. The plant is designed to be able to start up quickly (under two minutes), which enables it to provide power to the market at times of peak demand.
The project is maintained by the Original Equipment Manufacturer with asset management provided in-house by Downing, supported by a Technical Asset Manager.
