Madrid, September 7, 2006 — Telvent GIT S.A.

This project, which will be executed in 2006 and 2007, is part of the Tramontana Plan, under which Endesa will provide an additional 4,800 megawatts of power in the Catalonia region of Spain.

Our systems offer a high degree of reliability, availability and security and will provide Endesa with the necessary tools to optimize the efficiency of its operations and the quality of service offer to clients."

Since 2000, Telvent has supplied more than 200 integrated control and protection systems to Endesa, as well as numerous other companies in the electric sector. These include the design and execution of communication network control systems for Red Electrica Española, the automatic residential metering reading system for Vattenfall ElDistribution AB and the telecontrol project for the medium tension network for Union Fenosa, which uses Telvent technology for communicating with more than 8,000 data collection points.
