Argo I

Represents Lot A of the first stage of the ANEEL 013/2015 Auction (13/April/16).

See the Environmental Impact Report (RIMA) on Argo I

Argo I expands the Basic Power Grid of the states of Maranhão, Piauí and Ceará, allowing increased dispatching of the power generated in these locations. The Argo I transmission line will cross these states, travelling across 42 municipalities with about 1,200 km in length *.

* Until the project’s conclusion, the layout may suffer small changes.

The line will allow the connection of new wind power generation projects located in these states, bringing economic development to the region and also improving the quality and reliability of the Brazilian electrical system.
