A historic project

Located in the magnificent city of Cap-Chat, in Gaspésie, it is a vestige of the beginnings of research on renewable energies in Quebec, this giant of 110 meters in height was an important step in the development of wind power.

Built in the mid-1980s, Éole is the tallest vertical-axis wind turbine in the world. Shut down in 1993, it no longer produces electricity and is accessible to the public for visits.

Team and mission

A new young and dynamic management team has been in place since 2019, bringing together diversified experiences. The ambitions are high for this major project, and what was almost abandoned for a while, has since been completely upgraded and transformed.

In addition to being a place of entertainment, the Éole Project aims to make the public aware of the saga of the development of wind energy in Quebec and elsewhere in the world.

In addition to the transmission of knowledge, there is the discovery of the Éole site through various initiatives and fun activities. The site is intended to be an essential leading center for the Gaspésie.

A gust of wind into the future

The Éole Project is constantly evolving, with a multitude of surprises to come for the coming years.

The new Éole Project team is still in its infancy, the site is booming.


The wind is blowing hard in Cap-Chat for years to come.
