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. It was owned by PLN, the local power generating company, and crashed upon two homes when it landed, killing those inside. 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.
