Nuvolt Corporation: SMARTSCAN Among "Top Five Products" at World AG Expo

LEVIS, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 19, 2009) - CORPORATION NUVOLT INC (TSX VENTURE:NCO) announces that SMARTSCAN, its latest equipment Monitoring System for livestock farms, has just been recognized by World AG Expo as one of the top five technological innovations of the year.

According to Mr Jacques Dion, president and chief executive officer, it is a very significant recognition: "World AG Expo is the largest agricultural fair in the world. The event, presented each year in February, in Tulare, California attracts more than 1,600 exhibitors and nearly 100,000 visitors. Our product had caught the attention of the members of the new technologies selection committee, as early as October 6. Regarded as one of the "Top Five Dairy Products", the SMARTSCAN was showcased at a presentation to the media last February 9."

The long awaited recognition of the SMARTSCAN at the time of this event strongly contributed to increase its visibility. "In addition to a presentation in the official magazine of World AG Expo and on the event Website, SMARTSCAN was the subject of several articles in the January issues of some of the most read specialized magazines in the United States such as Progressive Dairyman, Western Dairy Business, California Dairy and Hoard' S West. Moreover, the attention drawn on the SMARTSCAN led the industry to also show interest in our other products, such as our SVF filters", commented Mr Dion.

"It was not long before the recognition of SMARTSCAN could be felt at our participation in World AG Expo. Many dairy farms equipment distributors expressed interest for this product; we are confident that this, in turn, should result in distribution agreements in United States within the next few weeks. In addition, as the possibilities of OEM integration of our SVF filters are important, one may think that, here too, the results of an increased visibility should materialize over the next months," concludes Mr Dion.
