Grand Baie aluminium smelter
Grand Baie was the first in a series of modern smelters built by Alcan in Québec. Alcan could possibly have added another line at Grand Baie, but the configuration of the casthouse made the addition of a parallel line suboptimal. Instead, Alcan opted to build Laterrière instead.
