    Each one of these generators costs $50 million so theres 14 in each one of the generator houses times 3 so 42 time 50 million= $2100000000

    Thats without concrete and without paying for the cost of labour on the job. Fuck me. They say money doesnt grow on trees but they certainly print as much as they fucking like hahahaha

    I have lost all respect for the people who made this video when they claimed that the Chinese ship lifting mechanism is an altered learning of the Russian ship escalator idea, these people do very little research, Chinese have been using the ship elevator by sections of water gates since the beginning of the grand cannel to allow ships to travel in both directions of the elevation since at least as early as Sui dynasty. I can't believe they are using logical fallacies to create this misleading message.

    Yeah but it's made in China . It's gonna bust in 20 years, so will all those buildings. Mark my words. They use substandard steel, concrete, and materials.
