Our vision is to produce the worlds most technologically advanced UHPC products and Engineered Solutions, tailored specifically to meet our customers needs.
UHPC, or Ultra High Performance Concrete and Composites are our business. We develop and we produce UHPC products and we offer UHPC based engineered solutions tailored to the need of our customers.
Nautec is engaged in multiple markets including the renewable industry, the ports and offshore industries, the civil construction industries and the downhole market. We have a global reach of 8 offices across Australasia, Asia, India, the Middle East and Americas through which we combine local knowledge with global support to offer value added UHPC solutions to our global clients.
Our UHPC products are marketed under the trade name NaX®. The products, which are all drymix products, are composed of selected blends of silica sand with optimised aggregates and fillers grading, coupled with advanced nano-binder technology to produce high quality UHPC products. The production of the NaX® products takes place at our automated factory in Malaysia.
We operate two state-of-the-art laboratory facilities which are equipped with state-of-the-art test equipment for testing mechanical and operational parameters relevant for the applications in which we are engaged.
Nautec, formerly Nautic Offshore Pte Ltd, was established in October 2011 with the objective of offering UHPC based structural strengthening solutions to the oil and gas industry in South East Asia.
The UHPC materials were initially procured from 3rd party, but in mid-2012 the first generation of NaX®, Nautec’s registered trademark for its UHPC materials, was produced and certified by DNV GL. In June 2012 we invested in our first UHPC offshore spread for subsea installation of our NaX® UHPC materials.
In late 2012 we incorporated a subsidiary in UAE to serve as the regional sales and project management office for the Middle East region.
In early 2013, we established our quality management system (“QMS”), which conforms to the management standards: ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2017. DNV GL is the certifying agency for the QMS.
The year of 2013 saw additional four subsidiaries being added to the group. In April we established ourselves in Brunei targeting the ongoing well integrity market and later in the year we established subsidiaries in Mexico and India – two markets which had good potential for UHPC based strengthening solutions given the large number of ageing offshore structures.
We also established ourselves in Malaysia, Nusa Jaya Johor, for the production of NaX® UHPC pre-mix and today the semi-automated 3,500 m2 facility has annual capacity of 30,000 mt of UHPC pre-mix products.
In 2015 our group received a grant from SPRING Singapore to set up a state-of-the-art cement technology laboratory in Singapore. The laboratory has formed the basis for the development of a down hole product for refurbishment and decommissioning of oil, gas, water and coal bore wells. The first materials are currently being trialled in full scale tests on operational wells.
In 2016, NaX® Q130 and Q140-E products were approved for use in the foundations of Vestas Wind Systems A/S onshore wind turbines and the first sales for the European renewable market took place.
In 2018 NaX® Q140-E obtained a DNV OS-C502 certification for Offshore use up to 35° C and the first sales for the Offshore renewable market took place.
The production facility situated in Malaysia consists of a fully equipped factory for production of dry blended cement powder mixtures. All the structural grout products under the NaX® trademark are produced here. The NaX® brand of premixed grout products consists of ultra-high performance cementitious (UHPC) grouts, high performance cementitious (HPC) grouts and ultra-lightweight cement composite (ULCC) grout products.
The 3,500 m2 factory has an automatic powder production facility with an annual production capacity of 30,000 tons.
It also has packaging systems for small bags (25-50kg packing size) and FIBC bulk bags (500-1,500kg size). Also at the facility there are managerial offices for Nautec Materials and a well-equipped laboratory capable of testing the performance of a variety of aggregate, cement and grout materials and mixtures.
