Turbine type Air Start Unit


The ASU requires high reliability in order to avoid AOG (Aircraft on Ground) in case of failure of an APU (Auxiliary Power Unit). It must be able, at any time and for any type of aircraft, to provide the necessary compressed air (56PSI pressure) to run the turbines and perform the start-up.

GUINAULT designed the safest ASU in the world using components known for their reliability. The use of electronic regulation allows them to operate in the best conditions and thus improve their lifespan, to limit noise at airports, and significantly reduce fuel consumption. 

The TS200 is a turbine type ASU, which makes it very compact and powerful. Its design also ensures the best performances and reliability, as well as fast availability under extreme operating conditions.
