    Inverkip power station is an oil-fired power station in Inverclyde, on the west coast of Scotland. Its 778 foot (236m) chimney dominates the local area and is the third tallest in the UK and Scotland's tallest free-standing structure.

    Construction began for the then South of Scotland Electricity Board (SSEB) in 1970 of what was to be Scotland's first oil-fired power station. However, the soaring price of oil as a result of the 1973 oil crisis meant that by the time construction was completed generation was uneconomical. It was therefore never utilised to anything near capacity with 1200MW being mothballed and the remaining capacity being used to satisfy peak demand. A notable exception was during the miners' strike of 1984/5 when low coal supplies prompted operation at capacity. Generation ceased in January 1988.
