This was reported in the press service of "Rostecha". The plaintiff appealed with an appeal after he was refused a similar petition in the framework of the suit of Siemens Aktiengesellschaft and "STGT" to the structures of "Technopromexport", which is being considered in the Moscow arbitration.

The lawsuit on the arrest of Siemens Aktiengesellschaft turbines was filed with the Moscow Arbitration Court on September 6. The claimant's requirements include the taking of interim measures in the form of arrest of four turbines of GTU SGT5-2000E, as well as the prohibition of the structures of Technopromexport or other persons to transport, install, operate, modify, disassemble, otherwise use this equipment. The claim also prohibits Technopromexport from making transactions aimed at alienation and any encumbrance of turbines.

On September 18, STGT, a joint venture of Siemens and Power Machines, joined the suit as a co-worker. In turn, Technopromexport filed a counterclaim against Siemens Aktiengesellschaft and STGT on September 18, invalidating part of the deal to supply generating equipment. The consideration of the counterclaim is scheduled for November 2, 2017.

In July, the Siemens company filed a lawsuit against Technopromexport, accusing the engineering subsidiary Rostek of illegally supplying gas turbines to the Crimea.

The German company claims that on the peninsula, in violation of contractual obligations, four turbines were moved, delivered in summer 2016 for the project in Taman. The concern intends to get the equipment back to Taman and prevent new supplies to the Crimea. In addition, it was reported that Siemens is ready to buy out all equipment and cancel the contract. In Moscow, meanwhile, they insist that the turbines supplied to the peninsula are of Russian origin.
