Germany's Siemens supplied four gas turbines to Technopromexport’s power plant in Russia.
Under the deal, the turbines are likely to be used on Russia’s Taman peninsula.
This deal brought attention in August last year when it was speculated that these turbines could be used in Russian-occupied Ukrainian territory of Crimea for building power plants in that area.
The transaction could encounter opposition from the EU since it has forbidden European individuals and companies to provide energy technology to Crimea through established sanctions. Siemens argued that no agreement has been broken given that Taman peninsula is part of Russian Federation.
Technopromexport organized a tender in 2016 to find potential bidders which could build the Taman power plant, but no offers have been received.
