Russia's Gazprom to buy turbines from Siemens for Chechnya plant

Russian gas giant Gazprom said on Friday it has agreed to purchase two gas turbines from Germany’s Siemens for installation at a power plant it is building in Russia’s Caucasus Chechnya region, Reuters reports.

Siemens said last year that it was reviewing aspects of its dealings with Russia after claiming that four of its power-generating turbines meant for southern Russia had been delivered to Crimea, which is subject to European sanctions on technology supplies after Russia annexed the region.

Gazprom, whose electric power arm Gazpromenergoholding is one of Russia’s biggest power suppliers, plans to open a plant in the Chechnen capital Grozny next year with a capacity of up to 360 megawatts.
