Bécancour Cogeneration Plant


Located in Quebec, Bécancour Cogeneration Plant has a production capacity of 550 MW of energy from high-efficiency natural gas.


Cogeneration is a thermodynamically efficient use of fuel that produces energy. Cogeneration plants minimize fuel consumption, save money and can greatly reduce emissions.

The Bécancour plant has the capacity to produce 550 megawatts of electricity. The facility supplies electricity to Hydro-Québec Distribution, and generates steam for two neighbouring factories.

The Bécancour facility is fueled by natural gas. It uses thermal efficiencies to minimize fuel consumption and reduce operating costs. What’s more, emissions are reduced by incorporating Dry Low Oxide technology.
