Czech hydro turbine manufacturer TES VSETIN and Russian power company Nord Hydro have signed an agreement of cooperation for the renovation and construction of a number of small hydroelectric projects.

As per the agreement, 56 turbine generators will be installed at new, rehabilitated and upgraded micro hydro plants in the Russian Federation through the next seven years, eventually equating to an additional 130 MW of installed hydroelectric capacity.
