Located in the municipalities of Saint-Luc-de-Bellechasse and Saint-Magloire in the MRC des Etchemins and in the municipalities of Notre-Dame-Auxiliatrice-de-Buckland and Saint-Philémon in the MRC de Bellechasse, Massif du Sud generates enough clean electricity to meet the needs of about 35,000 Quebec homes.

With an investment of close to $340 million, the project created more than 250 jobs during the peak construction phase, and around ten permanent operation and maintenance jobs.

“From the early stages of development, thru implementation to commissioning, the teams successfully overcame complex challenges in record time and above all putting safety as a first priority,” said Benoit Rigal, Vice President of Engineering and Construction, EDF EN Canada. “Developing Massif du Sud in harmony with the regional park requirements, managing transportation of turbine components and constructing in less than 14 months-throughout winter, hunting and nesting seasons-is indeed an accomplishment to be recognized and celebrated. This valuable project is another step forward to advance the growth of EDF EN in Québec and Canada.”

“The success of this project is due to support from the communities in the Chaudiere-Appalaches region and to the Quebec Government’s continuing support of renewable energy generation in the province,” said Don Thompson, Vice President, Green Energy & Power Transmission. “With the dedication event of Massif du Sud, Enbridge is proud to expand its presence in the province with our first operational Quebec-based renewable energy project.”

Alex Couture, Project Development Director for EDF EN Canada further added, “Throughout the 20-year contract with Hydro-Quebec, the municipalities concerned by these projects will receive a combined annual contribution of over $300,000. The Corporation d’aménagement du parc régional du Massif du Sud will also receive an annual contribution of about $75,000.”
