UAB Steam Plant
The UAB Steam Plant is located at 1300 6th Avenue South. The plant was constructed in 2012 and became fully operational in February 2013. It was built to replace the old steam pipe distribution network that had previously been run by Alabama Power Company. The new distribution network provides high-quality steam service to the UAB campus, research and medical center facilities, including the UAB Callahan Eye Hospital, Birmingham VA Medical Center and Southern Research Institute.
