Cliff Quay Power Station was a coal-fired power station situated to the south of Ipswich, Suffolk in the East of England. The station was designed by Sir Alexander Gibb & Partners and built by the Cleveland Bridge Company. The station's boilers were made by Babcock Power Ltd, and its turbo generators made by Metropolitan-Vickers.
The station's six 46 megawatt (MW) generating units were brought into operation between 1949 and 1952. The station's boilers burned bituminous coal until it closed in 1985. The station was then demolished in November 1994. The station was demolished by MJ Finnigan & Co. In 1997, a 7,500 square metre bulk storage shed was built on the site of the power station.
