MOSCOW, September 04. /ITAR-TASS/. RusHydro International, a unit of top Russian hydropower company RusHydro, has started implementing a program to modernize and reconstruct two hydropower plants in Nigeria, RusHydro said on Thursday.

At the first stage, the company plans to sign contracts on equipment supplies and construction and installation works at the facilities.

In 2013, RusHydro International signed an agreement with Mainstream Energy to fulfill engineering services during modernization of the Kainji and Jebba hydropower plants with a combined capacity of 1,300 megawatts during five years.

The company will prepare design documentation, organize tenders for modernization works at the facilities, train personnel, and provide consulting services over the plants’ exploitation.
