Project Title

Seismic Hazard Assessment for the SEPCC Mariveles Power Plant 2


Shanghai Electric Power Construction Co. Ltd.


Mariveles, Bataan

Shanghai Electrical Power Construction Co. Ltd. commissioned AMH Philippines, Inc. to conduct a Seismic Hazard Assessment on their proposed Power Plant located in Mariveles, Bataan. Using AMH-developed MathCAD spreadsheets and software like OpenQuake, AMH was able to review the seismic activities that may affect the Power Plant and make the necessary recommendations for the structure. AMH used various attenuation relation models, such as the Fukushima-Tanaka Attenuation Relation and NGA Relation, to recommend the Peak Ground Acceleration and maximum Pseudo-spectral acceleration for the site.
