Russian power engineering firm Power Machines plans to supply equipment to the Baksanskaya hydro plant in February 2012, wire reports indicate. The plant was damaged during a terrorist attack last year.

The financial details of the deal were not provided.

Under an agreement with Russian hydropower generating company RusHydro, Power Machines plans to supply different equipment for three hydropower units of the plant, as well as to provide installation services, Russian news agencies reported.

Following the installation, the plant's capacity is expected to increase to 27 MW from the current 25 MW.
