unphysical pressure increase at outlet

I am simulating a waterturbine stator flow channel (with cyclicGgi) with two fixed blade rows (1 stayvane & 2 guidevanes).
I have stable and converging results that are not too much away from reality, except in one point:
In the outlet region, I get an unphysical increase in static pressure and decrease in velocity.
My boundary conditions are:
- inlet velocity profile, defining Q and the inlet flow angle
- walls (hub, shroud, guidevanes, stayvane)
- cyclic periodic symmetry (cyclicGgi)
- outlet pressure: fixedMeanValue = 0
- average y+ is ~40
I am using the k-omega-SST turbulence model, as I found the exaggeration of k-epsilon in the stagnation point to be too extreme.
I already tried to use a finer mesh in the outlet region, but that doesn't help.
The mesh quality is fine (worst angle 30°).
I also tried to use fixedValue = 0 at outlet for pressure, same result.
I simulated the case on the same mesh with same bcs with CFX and attached some pictures that show the solution in a middle plane (static pressure and velocity magnitude for CFX and OpenFoam). I also attached my 0-files + fvSolution, fvSchemes and boudary files.
Thanks for your help,
