The launch of airbags is a unique ship launching technology in China. Now it is blooming all over the world. From Asia to the Americas and even Africa, we can see the launch of Chinese airbags. The airbag launching technology saves a lot of investment and shortens engineering time compared to traditional slides and underwater water under the dock, without the need for specific slides and expensive docks.
The airbag launch was invented in the 1990s and has been used in China for more than 20 years. At present, most of the small and medium-sized ships in China are launched by this launching method. As a launching technology with a history of more than 20 years in China, why has it flourished abroad in recent years?
According to reports, the current airbag launching has the largest customer base in Southeast Asian countries. Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam and other countries have fully accepted the way of airbag launching. Most of the new shipyards have abandoned the traditional docking and slide construction and directly built the airbag launching platform. The reason is that Southeast Asian countries have close ties with China. Many shipyards have direct contact experience with airbags, so it is easy to accept airbags. In addition, the professional technical services of domestic enterprises have greatly promoted the development of this technology in Southeast Asian countries.
