Region:
Municipality:
On the edge of the Canadian Shield, in the heart of the boreal forest, lies the last of the La Grande Complex facilities: La Grande-1. This run-of-river power plant, made of 640,000 m3 of concrete—enough to build a sidewalk from Montréal to Miami—will impress you with its drive shafts measuring over 2 m in diameter. More than 6,000 workers helped build La Grande-1 generating station. You’ll be amazed to see how well it blends in with the natural environment. Imposing and majestic!
