Hydraulic starter for engines

Voith EcoStart™

Starting engines safely, emission free

Combining safety, reliability and a zero emission start-up to meet the increasingly stringent environmental regulatory mandates, the EcoStart™ hydraulic starter improves engine performance, within the range of 300 – 11,000 HP. The advanced design efficiently utilizes hydraulic energy to provide precise control needed for a reliable engine start-up.

Furthermore, the unit has an impressive starting frequency (for example 3 starts at 30 seconds with a short recharge time), slow roll, soft start capabilities, and a smaller footprint when compared to other technology on the market. These units were originally designed for compressor stations for gas pipelines, however the EcoStart™ is the ideal replacement for gas, electric and compressed air starter systems, too.
