Located in Houston, Texas
Represented by Brady Waters
Nemalux is represented in the Southern US and portions of the Gulf Coast by Brady Waters, a dynamic automation company with headquarters located in Richardson, Texas, and offices in Dallas, Houston, nearby Louisiana, Oklahoma and Arkansas.
The city of Houston boasts many firsts including: the largest city in Texas, fourth largest in the US and sixth largest in North America. At 634 square miles, it is also one of the largest US cities by area. Culturally, it is the most racially diverse city in the US. At its economic heart, it is the leading petrochemical manufacturer in the Americas, which also helps make it the top US port by international cargo tonnage. It is the fourth largest concentration of fortune 500 companies such as Phillips 66, Conoco-Phillips, Halliburton, Baker-Hughes and others. Not surprisingly, most of these are energy-related companies. In 1961, NASA made Houston the home of its manned spaceship program with the construction of the Lydon B. Johnson Space Center, setting the precedent for Houston to become a leading aerospace center. When the Houston Astrodome opened in 1965, it was the world’s first indoor domed stadium and was dubbed the “eighth wonder of the world.”
Houston is the oil refining capital of Texas and Brady Waters’ footprint within Texas and across the Southern states allows Nemalux to reach a vast untapped market of potential hazardous location lighting end users. Brady Waters’ territories includes the two Gulf Coast states of Texas and Louisiana, where petroleum, LNG, petrochemical refining and offshore drilling dominate the economy. With a GDP of $1.9 trillion USD, Texas is the 2nd largest economy in the US and 9th largest economy in the world. It dwarfs the GDP of Nemalux’s home province of Alberta, which has almost a tenth of Texas’s GDP: $253 billion USD. Outside of Texas, neighboring states Louisiana and Oklahoma are also home to some of the US’s largest petroleum producers and petrochemical refining plants, which are also prime users of Nemalux hazardous location lighting products and services.
Texas is the energy capital of the US, accounting for 28% of the US refining capacity, most of it in Houston. Texas leads the nation in both petroleum and natural gas production and Houston is the petrochemical refining capital of the Americas. Nearby Lake Charles, Port Arthur, Corpus Christi are each major petrochemical refining hubs, the Permian Basin is a hotbed of petroleum and NGL and the Gulf Coast of Mexico is a hub of offshore drilling. Ever the opportunists, Texans are hedging their bet with climate change by developing one of the nation’s largest renewable energy sectors. At 27 Gigawatts of wind energy, Texas now produces 25% of the US wind energy capacity, and is the world’s fifth largest wind generator.
Nemalux offers petrochemical refineries in Houston class I div 1 (zone 1) LED lighting products, explosion-proof LED lighting products and class I div 2 (zone 2) LED lighting products for downstream applications. While not as well known as other industrial lighting brands, Nemalux is very competitive and can cross to almost any major brand, and offer many advantages. Nemalux’s new generation of LED luminaires such as the MR makes use of secondary optics to allow for the configuration of a large number of optical beam patterns. This allows clients the ability to purchase one hazardous location LED luminaire model that can be configured for countless applications. This solves a common purchasing problem – the need to stock multiple luminaire models, each for a separate lighting application in the refinery. Nemalux XR, MR, and AR all offer multiple lighting and mounting configurations, making them some of the most versatile hazardous location luminaires on the market. Nemalux’s EXC series is one of the industry’s lowest profile explosion-proof Class I Div 1 (Zone 1) LED luminaires, making it possible to mount in space-constrained applications. The GS DC series of very low profile, linear, DC powered hazardous location luminaires are ideal for mounting in Class I Div 2 panels.
XCANLED has been used to replace HPS lamps found in many O+G remote lighting operations including compression stations and ZLM, with up to 100,000 lumens per quad unit has been used to provide area lighting for nighttime operation.
Complimenting the versatile mounting options of the XR, MR, and AR, Nemalux also offers a diverse range of structural mounts and turnkey LED packaged solutions including swivel pole mount, articulated mounts, and Bull Rail mount.
Factory assembled solutions are ready-to-install out of the package, resulting in significantly reduced maintenance and installation time and costs. New lighting practices that make use of new types of beam profiles can significantly reduce the number of luminaires required to light walkways, stairs, catwalks, and platforms found throughout refineries. This adds up to significant cost savings.
Nemalux offers refiners value-added options typically not found with other hazardous location luminaire manufacturers. With potentially thousands of luminaires on one site, labor costs to maintain luminaires can quickly add up. When versatile Nemalux LED luminaires are used along with Nemalux’s flexible and innovative range of pole mounts, this can dramatically reduce expensive maintenance time to change luminaires.
Finally, Nemalux includes complimentary lighting design for any site, which can save on design time. Taken together, Nemalux offers an unbeatable hazardous location lighting solution to refiners.
The Gulf Coast is also home to a significant maritime and shipping industry. The 52 miles and 200 private companies that comprise the Port of Houston make it the US leader in foreign waterborne tonnage. The maritime industry is a prime target market for Nemalux marine-grade luminaires. Houston and the entire Gulf Coast is a major intermodal hub with railways stretching across the US and Canada and bringing products to be refined and shipped out of Gulf Coast ports. Rail, truck, shipping transport, and refining are all interconnected. Both marine terminals and railyards and tunnels provide many use cases for Nemalux industrial lighting products. Rail, pipeline, and marine transport systems all intersect at intermodal Oil & Gas terminals dotted along the coast of Texas and Louisiana as the product is shipped from terrestrial to marine systems. Nemalux has provided many solutions to intermodal operators over the years. For marine applications, Nemalux provides marine grade lighting solutions that are certified to ABS lighting and UL 1598A marine standards for terminals, docks, wharf port, and offshore drilling applications. Nemalux’s rugged marine-grade LED luminaires are triple coated to provide superior protection in corrosive marine environments. Nemalux’s GS linear models are one of the few linear LED luminaires to meet the ABS standard.
In railway transportation, lighting projects have installed Nemalux luminaires, leveraging price competitiveness, long life, high lumens, compactness, and hazardous location certifications to light kilometers of tunnels and large railyards. Nemalux offers custom solutions for transportation applications as well, such as custom signal lighting for the City of Calgary public transit’ “Transit Priority” program
