Tušimice Power Station is a lignite-fired power station in Tušimice, Czech Republic. It is owned and operated by CEZ Group.

The first power station in Tušimice (Tušimice I) was commissioned in 1963–1964. The current power station (Tušimice II) was commissioned in 1973–1974. The power station consists of four generation units with a capacity of 200 MW each. Its turbines and generators are produced by Škoda, and steam boilers are produced by Vítkovické železárny. Tušimice II has a 300-metre (980 ft) flue-gas stack built in 1974.
