Argo is a Brazilian electric power transmission company, working on the expansion of the National Grid.

The company was set up to be a link between centers of generation, distribution and consumption of electricity, bringing quality and progress into all its areas of work. The group is committed to achieving the best result in terms of economic, social and environmental aspects.
