Mexico, which has one operating nuclear power station, the 1360 MW Laguna Verde, initially planned to build ten nuclear power plants by 2028.
However, with continued low gas prices state-owned power company CFE announced in November 2010 that it would scale back to six to eight 1400 MW units, the first two at Laguna Verde.
Earlier this month, Mexico reported a 6.5-magnitude earthquake in the state of Veracruz, but confirmed that Laguna Verde, along with other power infrastructure, was undamaged.
