Telvent starts up a new traffic control system in Xinxiang

April 16, 2008

Madrid, April 16, 2008. – Telvent (Nasdaq: TLVT), the IT company for a sustainable and secure world, will start up an urban traffic control system in the Chinese city of Xinxiang. Work began on the project, the result of a 2004 agreement between Telvent and the Bureau of Public Safety of Xinxiang, in March of 2007. The project is valued at more than four million euros.

The inauguration ceremony will be attended by José Montoya, executive vice-president of Telvent’s Transportation division, and Carlos Dai, chairman of Telvent China and Carlos Blasco Villa, ambassador of Spain in China. The event will mark the operational start-up of a complex traffic control system made up of local regulators (RMY) for handling real-time data collection at each intersection, and area stations (CMY) to receive data from the local regulators for subsequent ordering and transmission to the control center.

In order to carry out this project, Telvent will make use of diverse innovative systems, noteworthy among them being the traffic signal control system, the electronic police system, the integrated assistance system and the geographical information system (GIS). Their integration will contribute to traffic fluidity in this Chinese city, as well as security and convenience for all of its citizens.

Once again, Telvent is a player in the process of modernization undertaken by the Chinese government in preparation for the 2008 Olympic Games, reinforcing its position in the Asian country. According to José Montoya, “This is among the most complex projects that Telvent has executed in China. Meeting deadlines and delivering positive results prove the Company’s ability to carry out large-scale projects for managing public safety and security.”
