ST PETERSBURG (Sputnik) – According to Petrenya, the company used to work on development of such equipment, having designed and manufactured a gas turbine using its own technologies.
"Power Machines [company] is ready to return to this project on condition of certain support, including by the government, which will allow to outline potential customers of domestic gas turbines," Petrenya said.
In early July, Siemens created a task force team to investigate reports about the alleged transfer of turbines produced by Siemens Gas Turbines Technologies, a joint venture with the Russian Power Machines company, to the Crimean peninsula.
On July 11, Russian Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov said that the new power plants in Crimea would be equipped with turbines manufactured in Russia and not with ones imported from the West. Commenting on the situation, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that all products used in Crimea made in Russia.
