Telvent will create new control center for electrical facilities in northwest Spain

February 13, 2008

• Center will comply with security, mobility requirements defined by Adif
• Project is valued at more than one million euro

Madrid, February 13, 2008. – Telvent (Nasdaq: TLVT), the information technologies company for a sustainable and secure world, announced today that it has been awarded a contract from the Railway Infrastructure Administrator (Adif) for upgrading the existing Remote Power Control center of León. This upgrade will result in control of railway electrical facilities in the northwest region of Spain. The project, which complies with Adif´s technical specifications for security and mobility, is valued at more than one million euro.

The new center, based on the acquisition and control of the OASyS of Telvent will be one of the first to be developed in accordance with new Adif technical specifications for power control centers. Special emphasis will be on security, including control center access, which will be restricted to operators by means of proximity identification cards and readers; this has an impact on the increase of the security on the operations performed on it.

This center will also be the first in Spain to integrate the “Remote Mobile Operator,” which allows operators to manage, control, and supervise the power network from any of the control network access points established in the geographical area of the Remote Control center. This integration improves mobility and, consequently, provides better control.

Telvent will also be responsible for hardware upgrading, supply of the new data acquisition equipment for the supply center, and sectioning post.

Ignacio González-Domínguez, Executive Vice President of Telvent’s Energy division, emphasizes that, through this contract, Telvent will strengthen its position as a leading supplier of control and management systems in both conventional and high-speed environments for main railway administrations. “With the application of these systems, we deliver security and reliability while reducing facility maintenance, creating a benchmark solution for the country’s railway electric companies.”

Telvent has worked with Adif on project development for the conventional speed control centers in Madrid-Chamartín, Albacete, Orense, and Barcelona, in Spain, as well as electrical control equipment in the Madrid-Barcelona-French border, Córdoba-Málaga, and Madrid-Segovia-Valladolid high-speed lines.
