Siemens says all four 'Taman' turbines illegally shipped to Crimea
All four of the gas turbines that were delivered in the summer for power plants in Taman, southern Russia were illegally shipped to Crimea, Siemens said in a statement, citing credible information it obtained.
Siemens said it is continuing to pursue criminal charges against the individuals at its customer, Russian power plant builder Technopromexport (TPE), responsible for moving the turbines to Crimea in contravention of sanctions against Russia. It is also pursuing legal actions intended to halt any other deliveries to Crimea and ensure that any equipment that has already been shipped is returned to its original destination.
Siemens also said it has renewed its offer to buy back the equipment and annul the original contract.
