Refuse to satisfy the claim, refuse to satisfy the counterclaim. Parties may appeal this decision.- read out the decision of the judge. At the same time, representatives of both sides told reporters that they would determine their position regarding the appeal against the court’s decision later.
Technopromexport, which is part of the Rostec state corporation, is building two gas thermal power plants with 470 MW each in Crimea - in Sevastopol and Simferopol. Commissioning of the first TPP units at 235 MW is scheduled for May 2018. It was planned to install turbines made using Siemens technology at the Crimean TPPs, but at the end of 2016, the company blocked deliveries due to sanctions.
Later, Rostec stated that it had found another supplier of turbines, power equipment would be supplied to the peninsula from the secondary market. According to the results of the Siemens investigation, the concern stated that all four turbines supplied to the Crimea turned out to be produced.
The Moscow Arbitration Court considered two claims against Rostec structures. The first lawsuit was filed by the German concern Siemens, the plaintiff in the second case was the joint venture between Siemens and Power Machines - Siemens Gas Turbine Technology.
In particular, two contracts were disputed: the first was about the supply of gas turbine units, concluded in March 2015 of the year between Siemens Gas Turbines Technology and JSC Technopromexport; the second is about the resale of these turbines to Technopromexport LLC (the contract was concluded in October 2016 of the year). In addition, Siemens was going to get this equipment back. Similar requirements were contained in the lawsuit "Siemens gas turbine technology" against Rostec enterprises.
In turn, OJSC and Technopromexport LLC filed a counterclaim against Siemens and Siemens Gas Turbine Technologies. The head of Rostec, Sergey Chemezov, believes that resolving the dispute between Technopromexport and the German concern Siemens for the supply of turbines to the Crimea is possible only in the judicial sphere.
Earlier, a representative of the German company in the Moscow Arbitration Court stated that Siemens is ready to return the money received for the turbines in Crimea if the equipment is given back to the supplier, reports TASS
