Cladtek uses Corrosion-Resistant Alloy (CRA) to manufacture mechanically lined pipes and weld overlay (Cladding) solutions specifically for the energy industry. Cladtek consistently emphasizes the importance of green and clean energy with minimal environmental impact and is actively working on energy transition projects, including Geothermal and Carbon Capture (CCUS).

“As many countries commit to achieving carbon neutrality and net-zero emissions by 2050, Cladtek stands firmly behind this sustainability endeavor, advocating for collaborative efforts to foster green innovation and cleaner energy solutions worldwide,” stated Lee Wilson, CEO of Cladtek Group.

Celebrating its 20th year, Cladtek remains steadfast in its commitment to making a meaningful contribution to the energy transition. According to Lee Wilson, two decades of operational experience have equipped Cladtek with high standards and extensive additive manufacturing and equipment maintenance expertise that can be used right across the changing energy mix.

“Our experience in the Oil & Gas sector with CRA Products means that we can participate in the changing energy mix in two ways. One is cleaner Oil & Gas production, by using CRA lined pipe (MLP) to capture and sequester Carbon emissions, and secondly by adapting traditional Oil & Gas product solutions for the Geothermal sector, such as CRA Mechanically Lined Tubulars (MLT). Our commitment to fostering an environmentally friendly eco-system and will help consolidate our position Cladtek as the leading producer and supplier of Corrosion-Resistant Alloy (CRA) solutions worldwide. We are very proud that this is being achieved by exporting Indonesian talent, technology, and products from our home in Batam,” exclaimed Lee Wilson.

In his speech, the Mayor of Batam-Head of BP Batam, Muhammad Rudi, stated that he is proud of Cladtek’s 20-year journey and is ready to fully support Cladtek in the future, and thanked Cladtek for contributing to developing Batam to date.

According to Kamaluddin, Executive Director, “GUSPENMIGAS supports Cladtek being able to maintain the domestic component level (TKDN). With production capacity and local content, we can become more solid in the Indonesian pipeline business, hopefully, we can succeed in preparing the size capacity required by the oil and gas industry. This production from Cladtek can be used in the domestic oil and gas industry and also meets world needs.”
