Siemens in dispute with Russia over diverted turbines
The German industrial giant Siemens says at least two gas turbines it has supplied to a Russian company have been illegally diverted to Crimea. The Kremlin said the turbines had been made in Russia using Russian parts. The factory in St Petersburg, where the turbines are thought to have been made, is majority owned by Siemens, according to Reuters. The German company said: "Siemens has received information from reliable sources that at least two of the four gas turbine sets, which were delivered for the project in Taman, Southern Russia, have been moved to Crimea against our will." Siemens said the delivery of its turbines to Crimea was a "Clear breach" of its contract and that it wanted the turbines to be moved back to their original destination.
