"Siemens" receive "Gazprom" turbine repair license "Nord Stream"

Siemens has sent Gazprom an export license issued by Canada for the repair, maintenance and transfer of the Nord Stream 1 turbine, Kommersant reports.

Earlier, Gazprom reported that it had repeatedly applied to Siemens with a request to provide official documents confirming that Canada and the European Union granted an exemption from the current sanctions to Canada and the European Union for the return to Russia of a gas turbine engine repaired in Canada.

Kommersant wrote that Siemens Energy sent Gazprom an export license issued by Canada, allowing it to repair, service and transport turbines to the Russian Portovaya station, which pumps gas to the Nord Stream gas pipeline.

According to the newspaper, Gazprom must now change the basis for shipping the turbine from Montreal, Canada to its final destination in Russia, so that Siemens can supply the turbine to Russia. He adds that due to documentation problems, the turbine had already been delayed on the ferry from Germany to Helsinki on 23 July. If the parties manage to exchange documents, the transfer may take place in the coming days, the newspaper notes.
