In order to bring Quebecers closer by making one of its facilities at Baie-James accessible to everyone, Hydro-Quebec asked us to produce a 360-degree video, offering the public its first chance for a virtual tour of the world’s largest hydropower plant, the Robert-Bourassa generating facility. The cutting-edge powerhouses form the biggest generating facility in North America, with a capacity of 17,418 megawatts.
