In 1971, Société de développement de la Baie James (SDBJ) created Société d'énergie de la Baie James (SEBJ) which is a subsidiary of Hydro Québec. With over 30 years' experience in large-scale projects, SEBJ offers a complete range of services in generation and transmission plant engineering, project management and construction.
Over the years, SEBJ has also developed particular expertise in remote areas and multicultural environments, as evidenced by its role as prime contractor for one of the largest hydroelectric developments in the worldthe La Grande complex in the heart of northern Québecwhich supplies over 50% of the electricity generated by Hydro-Québec. This was further demonstrated in the Peruvian Andes, where SEBJ personnel constructed a 220-kV transmission line at altitudes of 4,000 metres or more. Every project presents major challenges, and SEBJ has the qualified people to meet them.
Part of the considerable know-how SEBJ has accumulated over the years rests on the solid relationships it has forged with the people affected by its projects. Developing business partnerships and working in close cooperation with the Cree, Inuit and Peruvian communities, for example, as well as working to maximize regional economic spinoffs all attest to SEBJ expertise in this area.
As master builders, SEBJ personnel are high-calibre professionals. A multidisciplinary team oversees the completion of every phase of a project, from draft-design, detail engineering, procurement and construction management to environmental monitoring and follow-up.
