Rheinmetall Bags Orders for Air Start Units
Posted: 2017 Sep 04
 
Rheinmetall will supply MSU 200 air start units to one of the world's largest carriers, for use at US airports, under a May 2017 order valued in the single-digit million-euro region. 
 
The MSU 200 is a gas turbine-powered air start unit that uses highly compressed air to start military and civilian aircraft engines. 
 
The MSU 200 features a unique drive concept, which generates an air mass flow of 200 pounds per minute, and is one of a kind worldwide. 
 
The units also supply compressed air for running the air conditioning system on board the aircraft, in addition to helping with engine starts. 
 
Airports must have air start units ready in case a plane's auxiliary power unit, or APU, fails, making external help necessary to start the engines.  
 
Approximately 1,100 MSU 200 units have been sold in over forty countries. 
 
The service life of a Rheinmetall MSU 200 is approximately twenty years.
