Counterfeit Equipment Discovered at Chelyabinskaya TPP-1

Chelybinskaya Thermal Power Plant

Counterfeit equipment was used by the subcontractor organizations during the reconstruction of Chlyabinskaya TPP-1. The complaints of the licensing companies were published in the mass-media.

It should be reminded that within the framework of the investment program of OAO Fortum since 2011 the Chelyabinskaya TPP-1 have been reconstructed, which includes raising its capacity by 88 MW. The general subcontractor of the construction is OAO Southern Engineering Center of Electrical Energy Industry, it is this company that signed a contract with OOO Konstanta on the delivery of thermal panels for the power plant, which later turned out to be counterfeit. OOO Konstanta presented the subcontractor the forged certificates of quality for the purchased equipment. According to the data of the manufacturing company, which owns exclusive rights on this equipment, the volume of thermal panels deliveries to the TPP-1 amounted to 7 thousand square meters or 8.9 million Russian rubles of inflicted damage. The trademark holder has reported this fact to the law enforcement agencies.

“We don not hold any complaints about OAO Fortum, they are only addressed to the subcontractor and the plant-manufacturer of the panels – OOO Konstanta, which produced and delivered a counterfeit product. Despite the fact that the panels have our stickers they are a counterfeit product, and we wouldn’t like them to be installed at our plant. Moreover, we are

ready to organize our own delivery of our licensed panels”, — the representative of the license holder says.

The counterfeit panels were found in the storage premises of the subcontractor and were brought to the construction site of the power plant. So far there has been no further news about the installation of panels, not about the response of the law enforcement agencies to the filed request on this fact.

This incident is getting especially high profile in the view of the Anticounterfeit Forum-2012, which is taking place in the Greater Moscow Area, in the village of Kransnogorsk. It should be reminded that the prime-minister of the Russian Federation Dmitriy Medvedev spoke against creating the special authority that would fight with piracy, but he emphasized that this is a “moral task”.
