What is a mechanical ventilation station?
A mechanical ventilation station (MVS) is an infrastructure located between two métro stations that is equipped with fans designed to extract hot air from the métro network through inlets fitted with air vents. Huge noise suppressors mitigate the noise from these fans to ensure quiet for residents living close to a ventilation station.
The Rielle MVS has reached the end of its useful life and needs to be expanded and upgraded to comply with current noise and ventilation standards.
After the expansion, the MVS will be much quieter thanks to more powerful noise suppressors. It will comply with all City of Montréal noise by-laws. The work will also make the tunnel ventilation system more reliable and durable.
