Robert-Bourassa generating station is one of the crown jewels in Hydro-Québec’s generating fleet. With an installed capacity of 5,616 MW, it is the most powerful generating facility in Québec. Its longevity is essential to ensuring the long-term supply of reliable power in Quebec. This project includes the rehabilitation of eight of the 16 generating units of the Robert-Bourassa generating station, as well as the speed governors, static excitation systems and cooling systems in all 16 units. The DEW generating units (made by Dominion Engineering Works) will be the ones rehabilitated, as they show the most signs of wear. This work will allow Hydro-Québec to optimize its facilities and adequately secure Quebec’s energy future. Project completion is targeted for 2022.
