(February 9, 2021) — We have repaired Boiler 1, and normal operating temperatures should be back to normal by 8:00 pm. Boiler 2 is expected to be repaired by Wednesday, February 17, 2021, and should not cause abnormal (cooler) temperatures during this outage. For additional information, please contact the Facilities Service Center at (210) 458-4262.
(February 8, 2021) — The two boilers at the South Thermal Energy Plant (STEP) that provide comfort heating to the Applied Engineering and Technology Building (AET), Biotechnology Sciences and Engineering Building (BSE), Science and Engineering Building (SEB), buildings are down for emergency repairs. Building occupants may experience abnormal (cooler) temperatures during this outage.
Boiler 1 is expected to be repaired and operational by end of day tomorrow and will allow us to restore normal temperatures to the AET and SEB once the repair is complete. We are able to transfer the BSE to steam heating from the North Thermal Energy Plant (NTEP) by the end of today. BSE occupants should notice warmer temperatures later today. We will send a separate notification when the repairs are complete. For additional information, please contact the Facilities Service Center at (210) 458-4262.
