Madrid, April 10, 2008. – Telvent (Nasdaq: TLVT), the IT company for a sustainable and secure world, announced today that it will be in charge of supplying, installing and starting up its SmartToll system on three federal highways in Brazil. This project, valued at more than eight million euros, will be executed in less than a year. With this new system, Telvent will contribute daily to improving road safety for more than a million and a half automobiles.

The OHL Brasil construction company, which currently holds the most kilometers in Brazilian highway concessions, has entrusted Telvent to implement its toll collection system, which will entail the installation of 19 toll booths, three control centers (one per toll road), 348 tollways (of which 80 will be automated), as well as Telvent’s SmartToll management software. Through this new contract, Telvent adds 1,200 kilometers to the 3,500 kilometers already under the Company’s management in Brazil.

José Montoya, Executive Vice-President of Telvent’s Transportation division, has expressed his satisfaction with the contract award: “We appreciate the trust that OHL Brasil has on Telvent. We hope to be able to continue collaborating in future projects. By obtaining this new contract in Brazil we reinforced our growth prospects in the country and we contribute to improve the security of its roads.”

Toll control systems will be installed in the Fluminense highway, connecting Rio de Janeiro to Vitoria, the Fernao Diaz highway, connecting Sao Paulo to Belo Horizonte, and the Regis Bittencourt highway, connecting Sao Paulo to Curitiba.

Telvent carries out numerous projects in Brazil, among which the following stand out: highway management, ticketing systems, the UTC development and maintenance in Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Belo Horizonte, as well as the control system for the storage terminal in Suape, and the SCADA water distribution management system for the water utility in Belo Horizonte.
