The new 735-kilovolt transmission line will connect Hydro-Québec’s Micoua and Saguenay substations. The line will run roughly 262 kilometres through the Côte-Nord region (approx. 200 kilometres north of Quebec City) northwest through to the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean region. The new line will help strengthen the reliability of the transmission system in the province. The project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2022.
