Inverkip Power Station
Inverkip Power Station
The redundant oil fired power station was the first in Scotland and has been used only rarely since it opened in 1971. A victim of the soaring oil prices of that period which rendered it uneconomical to run. Last used in 1988, it was also used during the 1984/5 miners strike when coal supplies began to dwindle. All generating equipment has now been removed and the buildings and chimney (the tallest structure in Scotland) await demolition.
