Now in Arbitration court of Moscow considered the claim of Siemens and the “Siemens gas turbine technology” as a co-plaintiff to the two “Tehnopromeksport”. The German company demands to annul the contracts for the supply of turbines for OJSC “VO “Tekhnopromexport” and their subsequent transfer from JSC to LLC “VO “Technopromexport”. As a result of these two treaties turbines were manufactured for the construction of the station Taman, but moved to the Crimea. Siemens intends to get their equipment back.

Two tekhnopromeksport filed a counterclaim, which demanded to annul the clauses of the contract relating to the place of use of turbines.

According to Siemens, if the court makes the positive decision on the main claim, the implementation of this decision would be impossible, if the turbine will be already installed.

Siemens blames “the market” that he illegally moved to the Crimea four turbine set for power plant construction in Taman. Under the sanctions restrictions, the German company prohibits the use of their turbines for the production of electricity in the Crimea. Items on this was included in the Treaty of March 10, 2015, which was signed between OOO “Siemens gas turbine technology” and JSC “VO “Tekhnopromexport”.

In response to the movement of the turbines, the EU imposed against three Russian companies and three individuals for further sanctions.
