Gatineau (Sector of Gatineau)
Region:

Near the city of Gatineau, discover a hydroelectric power plant that, along with the Mercier, Paugan and Chelsea plants, is part of a complex with an installed capacity of over 550 MW! Commissioned in 1927, this generating station has been restored but retains its historical character. During a guided tour you'll discover the interior of a turbine shaft, the spillway, restored equipment and the history of a river once used for log driving. A fantastic voyage into the wonderful world of electricity! Visitors aged 18 years and over must show proof of ID (health insurance card, driver's licence or passport) before touring the facilities.
