The LHD8 & LHA6 Hydraulic Starting Modules (HSU’s) indicated in the photos below are designed to provide cranking power for water wash motoring and starting a LM2500+ gas turbine ships propulsion system. The HSU is designed for marine indoor installation and is housed within the engine room compartment.
The Hydraulic Starting Module is factory tested, fabricated, wired and ready for installation once MTSI is ready to ship the unit. The skid contains two hydraulic systems; the hydraulic starting system and the clutch coolant system. Both systems are designed to provide 100% redundancy. These HSU’s have been shock tested to MIL-S-901D, vibe tested to MIL-STD-167-1 and EMI tested to MIL-STD-461C, Part 5.
