Siemens Energy says it has damage reports from Gazprom on Nord Stream 1 turbines

- Siemens Energy SMEGF on Wednesday said it had received any damage reports regarding the turbines of Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline from Russia's Gazprom OGZPY so far, adding it did have access to the turbines on site.

"Therefore, we have to assume that the turbines are operating ," the company said, adding any future maintenance work could be facilitated as the Canadian government had already agreed the turbines, maintained by Siemens Energy in Montreal, could be transported from Canada to Germany.

Russia has cited turbine problems as its reason for cutting gas supply via Nord Stream 1, its main gas link to Europe, to just 20% of capacity from Wednesday.
