Telvent to Maintain Catalonian Water Agency's Automatic Hydrological Information System

October 20, 2009

October 20, 2009 - Telvent (NASDAQ: TLVT), the IT company for a sustainable and secure world, announced today the renewal of its contract with the Catalonian Water Agency to carry out maintenance of its hydrological information system. The amount of the contract renewal totals more than 4 million euros.

The project, which encompasses the Muga, Fluviá and lower Ter river basins, is designed to meet new Catalonian Water Agency management requirements reflected in the agency's Service Model and to facilitate fulfillment of the objectives and control measures established by the Water Framework Directive. Particular emphasis has been placed on preventing deterioration, improving and restoring water conditions, reducing pollution from dumping and the emission of hazardous substances, as well as the conservation of protected areas.

Telvent will continue to provide service to CWA for two more years, as an extension of the initial 2007 contract. This service includes maintenance of the monitoring and control infrastructure of the internal basins of Catalonia in the northeast region; Telvent will also undertake expansion and improvement of this infrastructure.

"This contract fortifies Telvent's presence in the water sector and, in particular, in the area of hydrographic basin management," stated Manuel Sanchez, Telvent's Chairman and CEO. "Highly aware of the fact that water is a critical resource for our economy and well-being, this contract is doubly satisfying for us. It signifies the renewed trust of a customer such as CWA, and it enables us to continue our contribution to enhanced sustainability."

At present, Telvent is also in charge of maintaining the information systems of the Guadalquivir, Bárbate, Guadalete and Southern Hydrographical Basins for the Andalusian Water Agency. The company has also installed and maintains the Duero River Hydrographical Basin information system. Telvent has developed other projects for the efficient use of water for companies like Colorado Springs Utilities (CSU), Contra Costa Water District (CCWD), Las Vegas Valley Water District (LVVWD), Marin Municipal Water District (MMWD) y South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD), in the United States.
