Telvent to upgrade the Oresund link SCADA system

September 21, 2005

Madrid, September 21, 2005 - Telvent GIT S.A. (NASDAQ: TLVT), the Global RealTime IT Company, has signed a contract for more than 1.4 million euros with the Oresund bridge consortium (Øresundsbro Konsortier) to upgrade the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) management and information control system for the road and rail link between Sweden and Denmark.

The Oresund link, which was inaugurated on July 1, 2000 with Telvent technology, consists of an eight-kilometer bridge, a four-kilometer artificial island, and a four-kilometer undersea tunnel. Telvent was initially contracted to provide the stationary and variable traffic signaling system, closed-circuit TV system, automatic traffic incident detection system, fire-detection system, remote local data acquisition system, and the SCADA system (OASyS 5.2.2).

The upgrading of the SCADA system to OASyS DNA will enable greater integration of various link control and maintenance applications and will facilitate the incorporation of new or upgraded remote units in the future. As safety needs increase, Telvent will install control centers at two locations to enable control to be undertaken, whenever necessary, from either one.

Telvent (Nasdaq: TLVT), the Global RealTime IT Company, is specialized in high value-added solutions for four specific industrial sectors (Energy, Traffic, Transport and Environment) in Europe, North America, Latin America and China. (
