The first diamond mine in Québec, and one of only six in Canada, employing approximately 500 people.
Visit to Beauharnois hydro dam
We visit the Beauharnois generator station, one of the world's largest hydropower facilities and built in art deco style. Its 38 generating units, spread out over almost a kilometre, make it Hydro-Québec’s most powerful run-of-river plant and a striking inspiration for other sustainable energy projects.
During the drive to the dam Matthias Janssens, advisor to Nabilla Ait Daoud, Antwerp vice mayor for environment, will elaborate on durable energy in Antwerp and Flanders.
