PLTD Apung in Punge Blang Cut

PLTD Apung 1 is an electric generator ship in Banda Aceh, Sumatra, Indonesia that has become a tourist attraction. The 2,600 ton vessel had been in the sea and was flung 2 to 3 km inland by the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami.[1][2] It was owned by PLN, the local power generating company, and crashed upon two homes when it landed, killing those inside.[1] Visitors can climb to the top of the ship.

This boat was given to Aceh during the Aceh conflict between the government and GAM (Gerakan Aceh Merdeka). In 2012-2013 this boat was renovated and now has 2 towers, a monument, a flying walk & jogging area and a fountain.
