Quarries are part of the buildcraft mod, which uses its own form of power (power from engines, referred to as MJ, or megajoules.) In order to power a quarry with IC2's EU (energy units, i think,) you need an energy link, described here: http://thetekkit.wikia.com/wiki/Power_Converters .

To use it properly, you wire your batbox to one side, and on the opposite side of the energy link, you will need both a wooden conductive pipe, as well as another intermediate conductive pipe, e.g. cobblestone, before connecting to the quarry. The extra pipe is because buildcraft intentionally does not enjoy connecting power sources to their targets with only a single wooden pipe.

Some things to note - in my experience, the energy link is a huge drain on power, often taking up to 72 Eu/T at all times, even if its not actually connected to the quarry. Not a huge deal, but something to keep your eyes on.

Hope this helps.
