Russia will face the difficulties in launching the gas turbines at the electric power plants after the supply of the Siemens gas turbines to occupied Crimea beyond the sanctions. The sources of Reuters reported this.
According to the agency, any of the Russian companies ever worked with Siemens turbines without the help of the German producer that claimed about the intentions to block the installation and exploitation of the turbines.
Ten specialists of this sphere who communicated with Reuters claimed that the launch of the turbines without the Siemens engineers or its partners will become the tough trial of the Russian engineering invention. This situation is fraught with technic problems.
At the same time, the sources of the agency recognize that it is real to launch the turbines without Siemens representatives. It is known that 18 turbines of the same model were launched at the Russian electric power plants. So, there were people who observed the process of the launching of the turbines.
The German Siemens concern claimed that the information in the mass media about the turbines supply to occupied Crimea does not correspond with reality. Also, Siemens denies signing the agreement with Techpromexport on equipment supply for the building of the electric power plants in Crimea. It is noted that Siemens respects the decision of sanctions and will observe them.
