You’re sure to be impressed by its 36 generating units: stretched out over nearly a kilometre, they make this station Hydro-Québec’s most powerful run-of-river plant. In fact, this amazing monument to human know-how has been in a class of its own since 1932. The structure is also a treasured example of Québec’s cultural heritage, thanks to its award-winning Art Deco architecture.
