Several product news lift SOLIDWORKS from desktop to cloud computing, and helps to maintain the CAD solution’s lead 3D design position. The Norwegian company InflowControl is satisfied through more than 10 years experience with the solution and with the Scandinavian reseller CCSgroup.

Since 2000 as a Norsk Hydro engineer, Bjørnar Werswick has been using SOLIDWORKS. In Hydro as at his present employer InflowControl, the tool was used for 3D design and visualization.

Quality and efficiency

«In Norsk Hydro, we were 3D innovators. In many ways basic benefits then equal those of today. From design to production, our business involves people and companies with vastly different backgrounds. Three- dimensional shapes tell far more than two-dimensional drawings. SOLIDWORKS facilitates communication, strengthens quality and contributes to efficiency through good production drawings,» says Werswick, COO in InflowControl.

InflowControl is a growth company with nine employees. The company has developed and patented a solution for autonomous inflow control in oil wells. 

Satisfied with CCS

In modern petroleum extraction, water or gas is injected to push forward oil deposits into the steel tubing.

«There may be hundreds of our valves in a production tubing. When they register water or gas inflow, the valves close to limit production of unwanted fluids,» Werswick explains.

«As with any sophisticated computer program, you will on a regular basis need assistance to optimize the usage. The CCS employees have broad practical experience with the SOLIDWORKS tools and is of great support,» he says.
