The arbitration Tribunal Moscow refused to allow the Russian space Agency in satisfaction of the claim to Rocket and space company "Energy" conditionally penalty for the delay of the production of scientific and energy module (NEM) for the International space station (ISS).
As a result the decision of the court itself Roscosmos found guilty of disruption of the supply of a new module for the ISS.
As informs the newspaper "Izvestia", in the beginning of February 2015 Roscosmos sent a complaint to RSC "Energia", which blamed the latest in the disruption of planned works for the production of scientific and energy module for the ISS. The amount of liquidated damages demanded by Roscosmos from "Energy" amounted to 67,5 million roubles.
But, if you learn the case materials, the Arbitration Tribunal of Moscow came to the conclusion, that the fault is not the company "Energia" and Roskosmos, which gave the erroneous specifications for the NEM study. Space Agency, as they say in the court decision, had to make a assignment not for individual scientific-energy module, and to link the NAM and deducing its missiles.
Note that the NEM was scheduled to make in 2015, in the same year to launch rocket "proton-M" and enter to the International space station. But the reality greatly differed from projects: the construction of the NEM is not launched to this day, and in the draft Federal space program (BFC) for 2016-2025 start module is scheduled for 2019.
