Nowadays, the power industry in Mexico is building encapsulated power stations, because they are a more efficient, safer and cheaper technology for power transformation, and they also require of smaller spaces. Encapsulated power stations have been already built in cities of Mexico where the seismic risk and hazard is negligible. Given all the advantages described above, Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE), the Mexican power company, is studying the possibility to build this type of station in the Valley of Mexico, where the earthquake risk and hazard are high. Encapsulated power stations are composed of a series of high diameter pressured steel pipes that contain a toxic gas as an insulation media for the electric cables that host inside. Therefore, it is required that for severe earthquake shaking, encapsulated power stations remain fully operational and that there will be no risk of a gas leaks, particularly in the soft soil sites of the Valley of Mexico.
