Arbitration court refused Siemens to return gas turbines supplied to Crimea

The Moscow Arbitration Court denied Siemens to satisfy the claim to the Rostec structures - OAO and Technopromexport LLC for the return of gas turbines supplied, according to the statement of the German concern, to the Crimea, bypassing EU sanctions. The court also refused Technopromexport in a counterclaim to Siemens.

Refuse to satisfy the claim, refuse to satisfy the counterclaim. Parties may appeal this decision.

Arbitration court refused Siemens to return gas turbines supplied to Crimea

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

        Yes, the transaction was completed, if only then there were no problems with warranty and post-warranty service and repair, probably the relevant officials thought about it)), spare parts will not be enough for a long time. The Germans would quietly hush up this story, so no, they are driven by exceptional kicks unnecessarily wind up the situation, to the detriment of their reputation.

              And I feel sorry for Siemens.
              Normal people are forced, obeying the laws of their country, to start this circus.
              And they turned to the Moscow court, and not to London or The Hague, because they understand that they look like idiots.

        That's it, the question: When the machines will be installed, when the TPP in Simferopol
        and in Sevastopol will give a current?

        Well, they must somehow react, or rather play out the concern, although everyone understands that it is better not to exaggerate this topic, but to continue to work.

        Max, there is no badalov. There, the Germans had to rehabilitate themselves and their striped curator in front of their government .... Uncle Sam’s DolboAmbism, by sanctions, has a bad effect on Germany’s economic development and everyone understands this .....

        Duc, have calmed down. Like in an old joke: “Do you plead guilty? - No. - Well, no and no court ...” For this, the counterclaim was muddied. Now, as it were, no one was offended, everyone remained with their own ... except for mattresses and dill.

      Beautifully the Germans escaped from the blow ....
      The court decided - Goodbye! We (Germans) are out of business ....
      What can I say: for every Western sanction there is a decision of the arbitration court of Moscow ....
      There is a precedent, and this is important ....

      The decision of the arbitral tribunal to Siemens is at hand. The return of the turbines is not his initiative. The well-known company was bent by American sanctions.

    The Germans breathed a sigh of relief!
    What if they would have taken and offered to pick up these turbines. Where to put them? And now on hand is the decision of the Russian court. All. The ass is covered. From sanctions.

    Yes, this is just a spectacle, allowing Siemens to save face in front of his own and not run into internal sanctions.
