Video: The Chamouchouane project in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean and Mauricie regions
Welcome to the jobsite!
Construction manager Jocelyn Jean invites us to the northernmost reaches of the Chamouchouane site.
Beginning at La Doré substation, the new power transmission line will run for over 200 km through Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean and the Mauricie.
Construction of the project, which takes place in the forest on many sites simultaneously, involves a small army of workers.
