The Éole Cap-Chat team is able to offer you its visit, guide and interpretation services in an environment respectful and concerned with health standards and the recommendations of the Director of Public Health of Quebec.
Éole offers a vast space where the rules of social distancing can be easily respected, and the visit can be conducted while maintaining this respect, provided that our customers are also concerned about their application. Éole therefore relies on the participation of visitors in order to respect the rules of distance and hygiene.
Among other things, we will limit the number of visitors who can visit our facilities simultaneously; your patience will therefore be appreciated so that we can receive you and include you in the next visit, preferring to favor several small groups to one large group.
Sceptical facilities and anti-bacterial products will be made available to our visitors. However, we count on visitors so that they avoid as much as possible the contact of their hands with the infrastructures of the site, which we are committed as best as possible to decontaminate or sanitize regularly.
Given the size of the site and the open space, wearing a mask is not mandatory, but highly recommended. We will have masks available on the site, but in limited quantities.
We thank our visitors for waiting to be picked up at the gatehouse located along the route du Village du Cap, and for not venturing onto the site without first having acquired the right of access and obtained the authorization of the staff of Éole.
Together, let’s discover, and stay healthy!
The new team and administration of Éole Cap-Chat is proud to welcome you for the 2020 season from June 15 to September 15, 7 days a week, from 9 am to 5 pm.
Come and visit a site in full redefinition and revitalization. We thank you for your interest and are at your disposal to enrich your discovery and experience of this unique site in the world.
A remnant of the beginnings of research on alternative energies in Quebec, this giant was an important step in the development of wind turbines as we know them today.
It has not been in operation since the 90s but has been kept in place for visitors as a symbol of our heritage of energy research and innovation.
With our historic tour, you will learn the motivations that led to the erection of this titan of more than 400 tons and discover some of the secrets of its construction. You can also get to know Le Nordais, the very first wind farm in Quebec, and learn what its role was in the development of the Quebec wind industry. You can even contemplate more closely these giants sweeping the sky with their immense blades.
With the “mechanical” tour of Éole, you will enter the very interior of one of the largest electric generators in the world and will be able to see closely the excess of each element constituting this impressive engineering work.
