The ninth appeal arbitration court remained in force the decision of the first-instance court on refuse to assume the provisional measures such as the arrest of the turbines and ban for theirs installing at the suit of the Siemens against ‘Rosteh’ on the gas turbines in Crimea. Interfax reported this citing the data of the correspondent.
It is noted that Siemens demanded to arrest and stop the installing the turbines in Crimea to provide the suit against OAO ‘Tehnopromexport’ and OOO ‘Tehnopromexport’ (that is a part of Rosteh).
At the moment the Arbitration Court of Moscow considers the suit of Siemens and ‘Siemens gas turbines technology’ as the co-claimant against both ‘Tehnopromexport’. The German Company demands to recognize the agreements on the supply of the turbines for the OAO ‘Tehnopromexport’ and the later transfer to OOO ‘Tehnopromexport’ as the invalid. According to these agreements, the turbines were made for the building of the station in Taman but they were transported to annexed Crimea. The Siemens Company intends to return the equipment.
Both, OAO ‘Tehnopromexport’ and OOO ‘Tehnopromexport’ filed the counter-claim with the demand recognize the points of the agreements that concern the usage of the turbines as the invalid.
Siemens thinks that if the court makes a favorable decision on the original claimed then the execution of this judgment will be impossible as the turbines can be already installed.
Siemens accused ‘Rosteh’ in the illegal transportation of four gas turbines provided for the building of the station in Taman to Crimea. According to the sanctions, the German Company banned to use its turbines for the producing of the electricity at the annexed peninsula. These points were included in the agreement as at March 10, 2015, that was concluded between ‘Siemens gas turbines technology’ and OAO ‘Tehnopromexport’.
It is planned that the stations in Crimea will start to work in May-June 2018.
As it was reported earlier the sanctions on Russia were increased, when the country brought Siemens turbines into occupied Crimea, which violated the earlier imposed by the EU. Siemens claimed that at least two gas turbine units were supplied to Crimea against the company's will. At first, Russia denied the fact of the supplies but Technopromexport confirmed the supply of the gas turbines to Crimea after their modernization.
