Alabama Power and project partners continue to decommission Plant Gorgas located in Walker County. Three boiler houses and one vent stack were imploded Thursday, Sept. 9. Those structures generated electricity for Alabama Power customers for more than a century.

“Plant Gorgas was an important part of the greater Birmingham economy,” said Jim Heilbron, Alabama Power senior vice president and senior production officer. “We’re confident this safe demolition will pave the way for future redevelopment and reuse of the site.”
