Rapides-Farmer power station
In the heart of the city of Gatineau, just 6 km from the Hull district, lies Rapides-Farmer generating station, a landmark in Outaouais history. This power plant has been in operation since 1927. Your tour will unlock the secrets of the river, first used to transport lumber and then to generate hydropower. Go right inside a generating unit and look straight up to admire a 160-tonne rotor in action! Fascinating and historical! Important: Visitors must comply with certain obligations. Be sure to read the Schedule and practical information section of our Web site. Limited space; reservations required
