Cancellation of the framework contracts for hermetic transformers with Enefit Connect OÜ

Energo Veritas OÜ, a subsidiary of AS Harju Elekter, has cancelled two framework contracts with Enefit Connect OÜ for the supply of hermetic distribution transformers.

From 2021 onwards, change in the market situation in terms of price levels, availability of raw materials as well as delivery deadlines has made it difficult for Energo Veritas OÜ to comply with the framework contracts concluded with Enefit Connect OÜ on the agreed terms, and the war in Ukraine further aggravated it. During the negotiations, the parties have not reached an agreement on the modification of the terms of the framework contracts, which is why Energo Veritas OÜ does not consider it possible to continue with the performance of economically harmful framework contracts.

Enefit Connect OÜ has stated that it does not consider the cancellation of the framework contracts to be lawful and has informed Energo Veritas OÜ of its intention to claim a contractual penalty for the breach of the framework contracts as well as additional damages if the damages caused as a result of the cancellation exceed the contractual penalty.

More detailed information will be available once claims are received.
