Telvent to Upgrade the Moroccan Meteorological Network

Telvent GIT S.A. (NASDAQ: TLVT), the Global RealTime IT Company, today announced it has signed a contract for more than 1.7 million Euros with the National Meteorological Institute of Morocco (NMI) to upgrade its radar weather observation systems.

Telvent will supply and install data acquisition and management systems for five meteorological radars that the NMI uses for weather observation in Morocco. In addition, Telvent will upgrade the radar information systems in the four regional centers where data from each of the radars are managed, and the information system at the NMI's main center in Casablanca that manages the country's weather information.

"We are very pleased to work with the National Meteorological Institute of Morocco. By using Telvent's advanced new systems, the institute will more precisely forecast the appearance of adverse weather patterns that might affect the country's population or economy," said Manuel Sánchez Ortega, Telvent's chairman and chief executive officer.

Telvent is currently upgrading radar weather observation systems for the National Meteorological Institute of Spain. Other notable projects that Telvent has executed in this sector include maintenance of the national meteorological radar network in Mexico, and the supply of meteorological radars in Queretaro (Mexico) and Beira (Mozambique). Telvent is also currently developing the weather observation and forecasting systems for Kuwait.
