Open parachute bags

With open bottom parachute floats(air lift bags) of Buitink Technology, almost any object can be lifted from the water, lifted from the bottom, can be floated or buoyancy can be added!

Open bottom type parachute bags of Buitink Technology can be applied in recovery of vessels and vehicles that hit the water. These parachute flotation bags of Buitink Technology are also applied in the pipe laying technology, where tubes and pipelines are to be installed or have to be lifted in local waters or at sea.
