US Power Systems Company to Supply Russia With Gas-Turbine Power Unit
Published 19-07-2017, 06:29
Russia’s Mobile GTES company has sealed a contract worth 1.25 billion rubles ($21.2 million) with PW Power Systems-CIS firm, the subsidiary of the US-based company, for the latter to deliver a mobile gas-turbine power plant, materials published on the government procurement website on Tuesday stated.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The equipment with a capacity from 20 MW to 23 MW is set to be delivered to Krasnodar Krai.

The protocol to the contract states that the necessity in buying the station was determined by the loss of equipment producing electricity in Russia's Southern Federal District. It is also said that there was a need to buy the mobile gas-turbine station instead of the installation decommissioned in the accident that occurred on the site of the West-Crimean station.

At the same time, the documents contain a provision that the recipient would not deliver this equipment to Crimea.

In July, Siemens filed a lawsuit in Moscow's arbitration court in connection with the alleged supply of its gas turbines to Crimea despite EU sanctions. The court so far left the claim until August 21. The company stated that at least two of the four turbines manufactured by Siemens Gas Turbines Technologies in the Leningrad Region and delivered to Technopromexport (TPE, part of Rostec) for power plants in Taman, were moved to the Crimea against the company's will. Russian officials have repeatedly stressed that the turbines were Russian-made and not those made by Siemens.
