Largest Power Station: Three Gorges Dam.
That also automatically makes it the largest hydroelectric power station on the planet—with maximum output capacity of 22,500 MW from 34 giant turbines. It took nine years long of construction with a staggering 27.6 billion USD, replacing Itaipú Dam that sits in the second place.

Longest Bridge: Danyang-Kunshan Grand Bridge.
Believe it or not, this 164.8 km (102.4 mi) viaduct is part of world’s longest HSR line—Beijing-Shanghai Line in which three long bridges along this line listed in the 10 longest bridges in the world. Viaducts are common for high-speed train for a smooth ride on uneven terrain.

Longest High-speed Railway Network: China HSR Network.
Currently, China has over 20,000 km (12,000 mi) of high-speed rail route with projection of 38,000 km (23,600 mi) by 2025. Over 1.1 billion ridership registered in 2015 alone.

Fastest Supercomputer: Sunway TaihuLight.
Listed as the fastest supercomputer on the planet by top500.org since June 2016 at 93 petaflops based on LINPACK benchmark, replacing Tianhe-2, another China’s supercomputer. Even astonishing when Sunway TaihuLight 100% relying on homegrown technology especially its CPU.

Highest Bridge: Sidu River Bridge.
This is the world’s highest bridge by a maximum vertical drop distance from deck which is about 496 m (1,627 ft). Commissioned in November 2009 with construction cost of 720 million Yuan. Located in southern part of China with plenty of deep gorges and steep hills, many similar rails and highway bridges were highly ranked in this category.

Longest Railway Tunnel: Guangzhou Metro Line 3.
Commissioned in 2010 after 5 years of construction, it is longer only by 3.3 km (2 mi) of that newly opened Gotthard Base Tunnel in second place. However there are longer tunnels but most of them function as water transfer.

Largest Building by Floor Area: New Century Global Center.
Located in Chengdu, sixth largest city in China, this multipurpose building has a floor area of 1.7 million square meters (18 mil sq ft).
Most of floor dedicated for retails, however its also offers houses offices, conference rooms, a university complex, two commercial centers, hotels, even water theme park at top of building.

Largest Aperture-filled Telescope: Five-hundred-meter Aperture
Spherical Telescope (FAST).
As its name tells, it has dish with diameter of 500 meter (1,640 ft) made of 4450 triangular panels with 11 meters on each side, in the form of geodesic dome. Begin testing in September 2016, but this radio telescope would be expected to be underutilized due to lack of experts in the area.

Fastest Commercial Operating Train: Shanghai Maglev Train.
Transrapid finally made its first commercial usage of magnetic levitation train as an airport metro ferrying passengers between Longyang Road Station and Pudong international Airport on 30.5 km (19 mi) rail long route. Maximum operating speed is about 431 km/h (268 mph) although its absolute maximum is about 501
km/h (311 mph).

Among Largest engineering mega-project: South–North Water Transfer Project.
It’s a multi-decade running project mega-project since Mao Zedong era aim to deliver 44.8 billion cubic meter of fresh water per year from south to more arid and industrialized northern region such as Beijing, Tianjin and Weihai.

  1. We Americans must have assisted with this video as it has horrible intrusive music instead of educational narration! Congratulations to the mechanical engineering!

  2. Every Muslim country is seeing CHINA as their saver otherwise everyone knows who is behind
    Fuckup US

  3. WARNING : THE COMMENTS FOR THIS VIDEO ARE DESTRUCTIVE , UNNECESSARY, AND MAKE NO SENSE. Cant seem to find the good to say about China development , only how bad the US is. EGO , and unwanted opinions reside here

  4. People are worrying about housing, energy.. raising cost of livings like food, dairy .. but not worrying about “made in china” rubbish products … Without the US market .. China would be stuffed.. china can’t shift into domestic consuming.. all asian know very well .. the chinese are very tight when come to spending. Also 4-2-1 china one child policy has push all the pressure of one person to look after 7 people.. apart energy and food on the table.. they have nothing left to spend. China commie regime has been printing more RMB money to stimulate rubbish infrastructures leading to nowhere to help curb down unemployment rates.. apart from that it will increase pushing the Belt Road Initiative debt traps projects into those corrupted countries to collect foreign exchange and others’ resources to reserve .. and all have been funded by china printing RMB and Chinese workers.. and the cost of those debt traps projects are unimaginable massive and pressure .. end up those countries have to pay back debts with their own sovereign and resources.. Also china commies have been trying to block all foreign currencies reserve flowing offshores .. that’s how the financial hub of Asia .. the Hong Kong crisis has begun .. as china commie xi jing ping want to control Hong Kong with iron fists..

  5. Surery, their High Speed Trains have designated (impregnated/overpopulated/fornicated/overrated/Great Grandma watched and Masturbated), High Speed Baby making Caboose's, for to make Babies, faster, with and an area for the Newborns to hurry the hell up and grow the hell up, faster, in, so as they, too, can make and have a Baby, while they await their destination, which is the nearest High Speed Baby making Caboose.

  6. Do you want a project that generates dollars and you do not need to rent a shop or commercial risks and cost of storing materials Think seriously and joined the world of health and wealth dxn and do not forget to register under the following membership number: 145240895

  7. lol. I love seeing those biased Americans comment on China. Sure, China is not perfect, but it is continueously improving at a very fast pace. If you have a chance to visit, you will be amazed by the people and its infrastructures. Or simply go on Quora get some true answers written by those who visited. Most importantly, stop reading those fake propaganda shits

  8. Professor, professor, professor I have a question for You. When the time comes to start amortizing the lessen money to build such's white elephants. WHO…………PAY?

  9. Chinese people are hard working people. The rapid growth and development of engineering projects in China is impressive. Go China!!!

  10. After watching this video-clips, the craziest one is the one who produces this film and entitles "10 Craziest Engineering Projects in China"

  11. What are we in the US doing? Why do we keep on destroying other countries and not building up our own? Dammit. At this point, China is the hope of humankind. Most likely, the west will collapse.
