Deputy Energy Minister Andrei Tcherezov noted that the first two Siemens turbines have already been installed at the Sevastopol and Simferopol TPPs and they are carrying out alignment activities.
Technopromexport sold the Siemens turbines to its structure in six months after it was ordered.
Roman Filippov, General Director of Power Machines, was detained in St. Petersburg by officers of the Federal Security Service. The date and circumstances of the detention are not yet specified.
The German concern believes that Tekhnopromexport has misled vendors, and demands to recognize the deal on the delivery of all four gas turbine plants as invalid and return them.
