In 1988 when Odessa city was flooded because of strong winds from the sea and the electric lines were down they have sent one of those to feed the power to Odessa port, Odessa fish factory. People still remember sound – like a full speed airplane roaring but on the ground.  And consumed 30 tons of jet fuel daily. But emergency was solved.

  1. what happens when people see these pictures? I remember in ER from years ago they had a lot of beautiful stuff. Then after people went there to steal the copper and destroy everything. People made comments about how sad it was because the stuff was ok for many years until you-tube.
    That generator belongs in a safe place, if that baby was in the US they would have spent a few million to keep running and in a Museum.
    I hope it is not destroyed by someone for a few dollars of copper. ty RT for posting this.
