Yes, You can change the machinery from cost model to revaluation model and move the asset from carrying value to fair value less accumulated depreciation and impairment.  Moreover, the fair value must be measured reliably and there is no substantial difference between carrying value and fair value. The revaluations must be conducted regularly.
