Telvent Reality-Based Training Technology Improves Hydrocarbons Company Performance

Universal Training Solution Reinforces Business Expertise, Operations Safety and Regulatory Compliance in a Cost-Effective Manner

ROCKVILLE, MD--(Marketwire - December 1, 2010) - Telvent (NASDAQ: TLVT), the leading real-time IT solutions and information provider for a sustainable world, announced the release of its new universal operator training system, designed to provide hydrocarbons pipeline professionals a realistic environment for training and qualification. The Telvent Universal Trainer system helps develop employee knowledge and expertise that supports good decision making, mitigates risks and increases operational efficiency.

Telvent Universal Operator Trainer is an ideal solution for helping train younger controllers, replacing highly experienced retirees. By improving employee knowledge, skills and abilities, Universal Operator Trainer also supports pipeline operator compliance with government and industry qualification requirements -- such as those defined by the Office of Pipeline Safety Operator Qualification, for North American operations and similar international regulatory agencies. An integral qualification information system documents all training activity and results.

This unique training system integrates a fully functional Telvent OASyS supervisory control and information management system for real-time data monitoring and control with the company's advanced and widely-proven SimSuite Pipeline simulator application. This world-class combination provides preconfigured pipeline models and scenarios detailing both routine and abnormal operating conditions in crude oil, natural gas and refined products transportation -- using the same 'look and feel' as the actual production environment. Simulators of this type are recommended by the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NSTB) as "invaluable for leak detection training."

In addition, the feature-rich Universal Operator Trainer training value-added solution enables a high-fidelity, standardized training experience beyond what is possible with generic trainers -- without a costly, full-scope training configuration. As a single-source solution, the Universal Operator Trainer offers reliability, comprehensive vendor support and minimized maintenance costs.

According to Telvent's CEO, Ignacio Gonzalez, "It is with great satisfaction that we introduce this high-value training system, knowing it is a truly viable solution for accommodating a changing workforce, helping reduce environmental risks and making the availability of energy more efficient."
