We will remind, on 11 July it became known that Siemens has filed a lawsuit against the company “Technopromexport” for the supply of turbines in the Crimea. Earlier in the company declared that the Peninsula was taken at least two of the four installations that were set for the project in Taman. Also a defendant in the suit is the company “Siemens Gas Turbine Technology”.

After that, the Russian media reported that in St.-Petersburg employees of FSB have detained the General Director of company “Power machines” of the Novel, which, according to preliminary data, suspected of divulging state secrets. At his workplace and home were searched, then Director of “Power machines” was questioned and released under recognizance not to leave.

According to the investigation, Roman Filippov “informed outsiders of documents containing confidential information”.

The company “Power machines” together with the German company created the “Siemens Gas Turbine Technology”, which was developed gas turbine SGT5-2000E. Later the turbines were delivered to the occupied Crimea company “Tekhnopromexport”, although the sanctions prohibit Siemens to do this.

On 21 July it became known that Siemens stopped the supply of power equipment of Russian government-controlled customers and the fact that all four gas turbines, delivered in the summer to plant in Taman, was wrongfully removed to the Crimea.
