TopTeam has entered into a collaboration with Serman & Tipsmark, where TopTeam will help with the construction part of a valve project, as well as work as a designer in their development department.
Serman & Tipsmark are specialists in hydraulics, and are i.a. supplier to the energy, offshore, transportation and industrial industry.
There are 5 hydraulic valves that must be able to operate under high pressure. The valves must be placed approx. 4 km below sea level. In order to achieve the requirements for such a construction, high demands are placed on materials, tolerances and surface roughness.
Furthermore, TopTeam has i.a. made three hydraulic systems ready for production. These are 1000-3200 L tanks, which are made of sheet metal. The tank is dimensioned based on the physical space of the customer, as well as the oil volume. Then the tank is constructed in Inventor and all production basis is made accordingly.
"As these are underwater constructions, enormously high demands are placed on the durability of the materials."

”We have been pleased with the collaboration with TopTeam and their dedicated employees. The collaboration was planned for 3 months, but had to be extended as the tasks developed. Here, TopTeam showed the flexibility we wanted, allowing us to extend the collaboration by two more months. All in all, a good experience for Serman & Tipsmark.”
