What is an estimated cost of recovering data from SAN

Purchased a 3U 16TB XRAID SATA RAID SYSTEM in 2011 at around US$ 50, 000. The SAN collapsed in 2011 "due to electric supply breakdown " .
Preliminary assessment of the SAN indicates the 3TB data stored in the system is corrupt.
To recover the data, it is estimated that this could cost around US$ 20, 000.
Is this the cost effective way of resolving the problem (recovering the 3TB data as mentioned)
