CHIP 101.9 has learnt of upcoming refurbishment work at Bryson hydro electric Generating Station in the municipality of Bryson.

On December 8, two representatives of the Pontiac Chamber of Commerce attended an information meeting at Hydro-Québec to inform the Pontiac’s business community of the business opportunities associated with this project.

The Bryson Generating Station is over 90 years old. Although well maintained over the years, the station is now in need of a major retrofit. The refurbishment will see the replacement of the station’s three generators, its electrical controls and upstream and downstream decks. In addition, the project will involve the construction of a cofferdam to divert water away from the generating station during the construction period and the building of access roads and temporary work areas.

Work on the Refurbishment Project is set to begin in the winter 2020 and terminate in the fall of 2022. Hydro Quebec estimates that on-site employment will at its peak be around 250 people.

The project is still in its preliminary phase. As plans become firmer, the Pontiac Chamber of Commerce will work with Hydro Quebec to ensure that local businesses are kept in the loop.
