Russia does not want to accept the repaired turbine for Nord Stream


Despite all possible obstacles and sanctions, the repaired Siemens turbine was sent by Canada to Germany, which is going to transfer it to Russia. However, ambiguous statements were made from Moscow, which do not allow us to say with full confidence that the unit will be accepted on the side of the Russian Federation and installed in the gas pipeline.


Russian Gazprom continues to insist that it has not received the necessary documents from the Canadian side. And it's not about technical documentation, but on the procedure for exemption from sanctions, which allowed the turbine to be returned from repair. By and large, Ottawa should not provide such a “report” to a party that has not been specified as a host. Yes, and Gazprom can demand from the contractor, that is, from Siemens Energy. In addition, it was logical to expect a request specifically for a report on the quality of the repair of the unit in the light of the statements of Russian President Vladimir Putin, who suggested that the machine would arrive with intentional defects in the design due to the fact that Canada, as a country producing hydrocarbons, is a competitor of the Russian Federation.

Of course, no response was received from Canada even to the second request of the holding, as the company's representatives wrote about in their official telegram channel.

We asked again and again received no response. These guarantees will be useful in the subsequent repair of other gas compressor units of the pipeline

- said in a statement.

In this case, the illogicality of the request turning into a demand is obvious. They ask for the wrong documents, not from the authorized side. It is expected that there will be no response. The West, in this case, draws an unambiguous conclusion that Russia does not want to accept the repaired turbine to ensure the launch of the gas pipeline at full capacity, and the arguments about “guarantees” are perceived as a bluff that hides the stretching of terms and behind-the-scenes games.

In any case, you can accept the already shipped turbine, put it into operation, and then ask for guarantees for long-term service during the period of sanctions, but not refuse what was provided despite the resistance of the US and EU Russophobes.

Despite the fact that upon completion of the repair and maintenance work, Nord Stream will be launched, most likely, it will operate at an even lower capacity than it was before it was shut down for maintenance. That is, the work of the highway will be purely nominal. The main thing is that Gazprom should accept the turbine and put it into operation without referring to legal "incidents" that do not particularly interfere with the physical operation of the pipeline. Otherwise, Germany's "goodwill gesture" will be limited to one episode, since Ottawa handed over the unit to Berlin, which, in turn, agreed to voluntarily send it to the Russian Federation.

This is an exceptional case in the era of total anti-Russian sanctions. In the future, it may not be repeated due to the strange legal claims of the Russian side. However, if Gazprom decided to finally leave the European energy market, then the opportunity to save face, most likely, looks like this.

      - only an amateur can write this.
      Will this amateur install a unit on his car, the quality of which he is not sure, but the breakdown of this unit can lead to fatal consequences ???
      The answer is obvious, but giving such advice to others is always welcome ...

        Moreover, to accept the turbine, to assume obligations for the supply of gas, without any guarantees from Siemens

    Today, at 7:00 am, gas supplies to Germany have been resumed via Nord Stream in full volume, i.е. "pre-repair" ...

    Gas is again supplied to Germany via Nord Stream after scheduled maintenance work on the gas pipeline. The relevant information was confirmed by the operators of the German gas pipelines OPAL and NEL.

    According to them, the gas arrived at the reception point in Greifswald on Thursday, July 21, 2022, at 7:XNUMX Moscow time.

    According to Nord Stream AG, gas is currently pumped at a reduced level - about 30% of the maximum.

    Recall, US State Department spokesman Ned Price said that the resumption of the Nord Stream is an opportunity for European countries to increase energy security for the period until they reduce their dependence on Russian energy carriers.

      As the kp.ru website wrote earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed confidence that the launch of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline could help increase Russian gas supplies to Europe.

      However, the SP-2 was never certified and cannot be launched immediately, this is a well-known fact.

    They ask (demand) exactly those documents - legal, from the country that is responsible for all this political bazaar - from Canada.
    Russia does not need handouts of any kind from anyone.

    Everything has already been thought of before us. It is necessary to create an international commission for certification, it is necessary to include Poland, Ukraine, the Baltic states, and Germany in the commission. Let them do good. Then it remains to check only the documents of compliance of those services.

    The main thing is that Gazprom should accept the turbine and put it into operation without referring to legal "incidents" that do not particularly interfere with the physical operation of the pipeline.

    If "legal incidents" prevent the launch/certification of NS-2, and this is perceived as normal by all the West in need, then what questions may arise for Gazprom, which requests documents from the party that puts spokes in the wheels when servicing its equipment? Judging by the behavior of Germany, she does not want to convince her contract partner of guarantees for the fulfillment of her obligations under the equipment maintenance contract. Gazprom/Russia decided to ask for these guarantees directly from the "sluggish" side. There are no rules in business custom that would prohibit this. This is simply an indicator that Russia considers Germany's legal personality limited, in need of additional "stimulation."

    they will find, of course, only the price tag will be different, this is exactly what the Americans need - Europe will become uncompetitive due to extremely high prices for energy resources and, as a result, for final products manufactured in the EU. What is already happening.

    Gossspodi, idiocy and incompetence everywhere. Which side is Gazprom here? There is a customer, there is a contractor. Gazprom ordered a turbine from Siemens. And it’s not Gazprom’s business where and how Siemens will repair it. Even in the garage on your knee! But! Documents guaranteeing repairs are required so that there is someone to ask if something happens. No documents? Well, no, there is no trial. We are waiting. It is impossible to accept a turbine without documents. And whether they will or not, we are monopenisual. We are fine as it is, without a turbine.

      As far as I understand, there is technical documentation on the quality of repairs from Siemens. Gazprom is demanding some kind of "political guarantee certificate" from Canada that there will be no such problems and delays with the return of repaired turbines in the future.

    Everything is obvious here. Since the repair is paid by Gazprom, there should be a calculation of the performed maintenance work, the technical parameters of the run tests carried out and a guarantee provided. A standard set of regulatory documents, without which the user runs the risk of getting into "grandmothers" if something happens.
    So, Gazprom is within its rights.

    Why do the authors of the article think that Gazprom DECIDED to leave the European gas market? All actions, statements and decisions of the EU testify to the contrary! The authors are engaged or pursuing their own self-interest, accusing Russia of incorrect actions in accepting the repaired turbine. You either did not hear the explanations of the President of Russia, or you do not understand at all what it is all about, or you are pursuing your own selfish goals!!!
