Malaysian Government Deploys Sealite NAUTILUS-2200 Ocean Buoys in the South China Sea

The Port and Starboard NAUTILUS-2200 2.2mt diameter Ocean buoys are now installed off the South China Sea in Malaysian waters. Local mariners including freight and fishing vessels benefit from the improved marine safety which these navigation aids provide.

Installation of Sealite buoys was approved by The Malaysian Marine Department – the leading agency for maritime safety in Malaysia. The department aims to ensure the availability of the lighthouses, beacons and buoys which they maintain is greater than 97% of the year to prevent maritime accidents in Malaysian waters.

Sealite buoys were chosen due to their long service life, ease of handling, and considerable strength and reliability. The NAUTILUS-2200 ocean buoy is moulded from UV resistant polyethylene – featuring high tensile strength, superior puncture and impact resistance, and low environmental impact.

Sealite polyethylene buoys require minimal maintenance – unlike steel buoys, polyethylene buoys never require painting and minimises marine growth.

SL-C310 lanterns are fitted to the NAUTILUS-2200 buoys and are completely self-contained with minimal maintenance requirements.

Sealite local Authorised Distributor Wide Beam supported the installation. Wide Beam has extensive experience of the marine industry in Malaysia, working closely with port and harbour authorities and departments to provide the highest quality navigation aids available and to meet local requirements.


  • Improved marine safety
  • Low initial cost outlay
  • Minimal maintenance requirements – polyethylene buoys never require painting
  • Superior service life
  • Ease of handling and deploying due to lower overall buoy weight compared to steel buoys

“[Re: Sealite Wins Duke ™s Choice Award for Java Technology & the Environment “ Sealite GSM monitoring & control system], The team at Motorola were extremely impressed with Sealite’s innovative integration of the G24-Java wireless module in their GSM Monitoring & Alarm System.”

-Golan Haver

“As one of your new distributors (Belize and Honduras, Waller Marine Belize LTD), I would like to express my congratulations to you and your people in providing reliable, dependable and inexpensive products. Formerly we were distributors for a Canadian made product but these were found to be too expensive for the market and also offered only difficult and complicated programming. Our first order of lights from you (SL15 ™S) took only four days to arrive from Aussie Land, when I opened the box they were still flashing. I tested a SL60 (white) for four days (steady on) before it required a recharge…remarkable. I will be placing another order with Dana shortly keep up the good work.”

“I just wanted to say thank you for the light and bracket Sealite supplied to Birkenhead Marina. As the other lights (old ones) need new batteries I will be replacing them with new lights from Sealite and the same brackets that you supplied with the light we received last week … Your product is excellent and the system of setting the light is good also. Thanks again for all your trouble.”
