The company explained this by delays in the work of the German Siemens.
Siemens Energy confirmed to Kommersant that “for technical reasons, these aviation gas turbines can only be repaired in Montreal, and due to sanctions imposed by Canada, Siemens Energy cannot yet deliver the repaired turbine to the customer.”
