Originally fitted with traditional hard-desk control panels, the control room at Rugeley was modernised in 1998-9, replacing the original control panels with the Advanced Plant Management System (APMS) softdesk system. The system used Siemens APACS DCS system which replaced the legacy CUTLASS and other hardwired systems.

Each of the two units had its own control station, featuring 21″ displays, large projection screens and an engineering workstation. Common services were supervised from a central desk between the two units with its own displays and a large rear projection screen.
