Towing an empty Dracoon

Towing a loaded Dracoon Loader


Dracoons are Collapsible Bladder tanks used for transportation of liquids across waterways.  They are usually towed by a marine vessel, empty or filled.

Feature and Benefits 
Initially the Dracoon Loaders are the most economical way to transport liquids across the water and were used for military purposes involving the bulk transportation of fresh water and various fuels. Commercial applications for various other chemicals liquids (chemical compatibility) soon followed the world over and more specifically in the Great Lakes Regions in East Africa and the Rivers of the DRC and Nigeria in Middle and Western Africa. Today, another frequently used function of the Dracoon is that of being an essential part of oil spill containment mop-ups and control operations in conjunction with our Flexitank Systems Oil-Booms.

A tried and tested concept, we now have an open water Liquid loading Towing Vessel. A redesigned and analysed solution (custom/engineered/bespoke) to what exactly determined the precise profiles needed to transmit towing forces and snatch loads. A concept used for over 50 years by the US and the UK as well as the Scandinavian MOD’s and Indian Coast Guards. We now make this product here in Africa known for its extremely harsh applications and conditions.

As Flexitanks operate in a vacuum, what you put in is what you get out, no dust, air or light exposure to your product.  

Our Dracoon is rigorously tested according to ISO 9000:2000 test guidelines.
