English term or phrase: flexitank
Hello,

I need your help on this. Do you know what sorte of tank this is. I think it's mainly under water but not sure at all.

Context: This is seldom possible, and there are basic alternatives such as Dumb barges, Floating flexible tanks (Dracones or Flexitanks) or Pillow tanks.

Thanks

Hello

Thanks a lot for your help. I also found all these now in pictures on www.vikoma.com.

I now just have to explain in Portuguese what these mean and will keep the English in Italics as these seem to be used by people who use them.

Cheers and count on me if you need any help as well.

Regards
Mónica

Explanation:
O grupo LEXZAU, SCHARBAU GmbH & Co. é composto por mais de 30 empresas que atuam em transportes nacionais e internacionais, seguros, distribuição, aluguel de equipamentos, containers tanques, flexitanks, bem como em desembaraço aduaneiro. (http://www.leschaco.com.br/introduction.html)

Flexitank is a mean of packaging bulk liquids for an intermodal application. It is an alternative of tankers and drums but at a lower cost. It converts a standard 20' dry container into a bulk liquid container, and yet as ideal as a portable storage unit that can be installed for minimal investment. Flexitank is manufactured from woven nylon or polyester fabric.
