               Aquavitae contract win - Associated British Ports

Qonnectis plc ('Qonnectis', the telematics and IT services provider to the 
utility and business energy and water user markets, announces that 
Aquavitae (UK) Limited, a new entrant to the UK's emerging competitive water 
supply market, has supplied Qonnectis' Internet-based water metering products 
and services for use on twelve sites at Associated British Ports' (ABP), 
Port of Southampton, one of Aquavitae's above 50 megalitre water supply 

This notable order was placed following the success of the initial installation
of the Qonnectis system at the Eastern Docks at the Port of Southampton.
Aquavitae will now use Qonnectis systems to monitor the water network throughout
the Port of Southampton as part of improving water efficiency, conservation and
for billing support purposes. The network extends to ship berths and commercial
and industrial tenants using the port. In addition to enabling the Port of
Southampton to monitor their own water network, the system will also be used to
'check-meter' the local area water supply company's meter for bill validation.
Aquavitae have already helped ABP save money by pinpointing leakage on this
extensive site without the need for large, manual leakage detection resource and

Michael Tapia, CEO of Qonnectis plc, stated:

'We are very pleased that Aquavitae has chosen Qonnectis to provide its system
and services, particularly as this is the largest single order to date. This is
another significant step in the progress of smart metering within the water
sector. Given the recent media comment regarding the need for businesses to save
water, this contract shows first that it can be done and secondly that leading
companies are starting to use the available technology to reduce water usage and
thereby reduce their costs. We look forward to continuing our partnership with
Aquavitae, together providing water management solutions and savings to both ABP
and other notable customers already in the pipeline.'

Mike Samorzewski, Managing Director of Aquavitae (UK) Ltd, commented:

'Our expanding portfolio of blue chip customers are switching from their current
water company to Aquavitae because they see us as a trusted supplier in the
emerging competitive water market. This is because we have identical objectives:
efficiency, lower costs and improved environmental performance. With the
Qonnectis systems we have seen a step change from the traditional position,
awaiting water company invoices, to the proactive position of having online
accurate data available which enables immediate actions to be taken and money
saved throughout this process, Qonnectis have been a diligent service provider
who also share the Aquavitae goals and objectives.'
