Nautican engineers and manufactures hydrodynamic solutions that increase power and maneuverability, while significantly reducing fuel use and maintenance needs. Nautican offers Integrated Propulsion Units, High Efficiency Nozzles and Propellers, high aspect ratio Triple Rudders, Pre-Swirl Stators, and also Hydralift Skegs for barges. Founded in 1972, and for more than 40 years, Nautican units have shown proven performance gains on a variety of vessels, including tugs, ATBs, barges, and other vessels.
Nautican holds nine patents for their innovative designs. In 2003, Nautican developed the Integrated Propulsion Unit, which combines the High Efficiency Nozzle, Triple Rudders, Stators, and Propeller in a fully assembled, ready-to-install unit. In 2015, many significant vessels, built with Nautican units, were launched. These include the Michele Foss – Foss Maritime’s first of three arctic class tugs. Additionally, Nautican was also involved in several ATB designs, including two for Bouchard at Halter, two for Kirby at Nichols Marine, and several Reinauer ATBs at Senesco.
