Грузовая ватерлиния
Explanation:
ГВЛ means грузовая ватерлиния - load (water) line or (fully) loaded waterline. Reference Словарь современных русских сокращений и аббревиатур (ИНФОГЛОБ Париж-Москва, 1995 г.)

л.с. means horse power.

\"Рубин\" is a design office which designs Russian (Soviet) submarines and located in Saint -Petersburg (Leningrad). Currently, it is called ЦКБ (Центральное конструкторское бюро) \"Рубин\". My guess is ЛПМБ stands for Ленинградское проектно-морское бюро (fLeningrad Design Marine Office) and I think the design office will well do for proper translation.
