Canada sent a turbine for Nord Stream to Germany - media

08:46 18 July Kyiv, Ukraine

The refurbished Siemens Energy turbine for the Nord Stream gas pipeline left Canada for Germany on July 17.

 
This was reported by the media, citing sources.

It is noted that delivery to Germany is carried out by plane, and not by water, as previously planned.

Further, the turbine will be transported by ferry and by land through Helsinki to Russia - to the Portovaya compressor station, which is located near the village of Torfyanovka in the Leningrad Region (about 20 km from the border with Finland).

Delivery from Germany to Russia should take "five to seven days, if there are no problems with logistics and customs," the publication specified.

Earlier, the Canadian government agreed to make an exception to sanctions against Russia and send a turbine for Nord Stream 1 to Germany, which has undergone maintenance in the country.

Ottawa's decision disappointed Kyiv, and the Ukrainian government asked for it to be rescinded.

Later it became known that Siemens received permission from the Canadian authorities to repair five more turbines over the next two years.
