Hydroelectric engineering

Petite_Moyenne hydroGranby has unique know-how thanks to the historical presence of Alstom Company and the highly complementary players. As a result, when Alstom left Granby in 2001, former employees started their own company in the city, further demonstrating the entrepreneurial spirit in the region.

Over 80% of the engineering and design of hydroelectric systems for small-and medium-scale hydro, in Canada, are made in Granby. These businesses have a solid reputation and are an acquisition target for major international players, as seen in the purchases of Vortex by Voith, and of Sitca by Alstom. The companies in Granby share the current industrial base with other business segments.

Granby’s industrial structure consists of companies in design and engineering which are very complementary between them. A strong collaborative spirit exits among the various players.
