Strategic Sealift

MTSI designed and developed some hydraulic start units for the MSC Strategic Sealift ship.  The HSU units pictured below are designed to provide cranking power for water wash motoring and starting two General Electric (GE) gas turbine engines for the Strategic Sealift propulsion system.  These units were 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.
