March 15, 2011 — Telvent partnered with Esri CIS in Russia to provide smart grid solutions for the country's energy industry. Under this new partnership, Esri CIS' 3,000 clients will have access to Telvent solutions to support their transition to a smart grid and provide a more reliable and efficient infrastructure network.
Esri clients will harness the power of Telvent's ArcFM Enterprise GIS tool, a powerful extension of Esri's ArcGIS platform. With ArcFM, customers will have a graphical, data-rich display of real-time happenings on the electrical grid, allowing them to respond more quickly and efficiently to outages and maintenance issues.
Customers will also have a more informed understanding of critical functions such as dispatching, planning, reporting, and analysis. This will serve as the foundation for an intelligent network infrastructure that improves efficiencies, increases safety and enables smarter business decisions.
The partnership continues Telvent's tradition of being at the forefront of smart grid technology throughout the world. To date, Telvent has implemented more than 600 GIS projects in 40 different countries.
