Telvent to control electricity distribution substations in Baja California, Mexico

August 3, 2006

Madrid, August 3, 2006 – Telvent GIT S.A. (Nasdaq: TLVT), the Global RealTime IT Company, announced today that it has been awarded a contract for more than two million euros to supply control, protection and communications systems for various electricity distribution substations belonging to the Federal Electricity Commission (FEC) in the Baja California region.

Telvent’s Saitel 2000DP remote intelligent terminals will be used to capture data. The FEC will then use Telvent’s real time control and data acquisition platform (OASyS DNA) to control the status of the distribution network at all times, as well as to notify and manage incidents as they occur. When the system is operational, households in the region will have a guaranteed and reliable supply of electricity based on fully automated electricity substations and minimal human error.

A communications network will also be created as part of the project, making it possible to transmit voice and data from electrical substations to the main control station via fibre optic transmission equipment.

According to Manuel Sánchez Ortega, chairman and chief executive officer of Telvent, “Our technology will help the Federal Electricity Commission to effectively control the energy systems in the Baja California region. This new contract reinforces our relationship with the FEC and strengthens our position in Latin America.”

Telvent has had a permanent office in Mexico since 1990. The Company’s most important projects in the region include a management system for the distribution operation centers of electricity company Light, in Brazil; and control systems for the Enersis group in Peru and Chile. Telvent solutions transport and distribute more than 140,000 GWh around the world, providing electricity to more than 80 million people.

Telvent (Nasdaq: TLVT), the Global RealTime IT Company, specializes in high value-add solutions and services in four industry sectors (Energy, Traffic, Transport and Environment). Its technology allows high performing companies to make real-time business decisions using data acquisition, control, and advanced operational applications, providing secure actionable information delivery to the enterprise (
