Quick facts: This power barge was washed 4km inland during the Dec 2004 Sumatra earthquake and tsunami. The barge was fabricated in 1997 by PT Jaya Asiatic Shipyard in Batam, and put online in Aceh in mid-2003. It was originally planned to refloat the 2,600t barge and put it back into operation, but later it was decided to make it into a museum and monument to the tsunami's victims. The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources spent Rp 24.4bn on renovating and securing the machinery and barge and the barge setting in what once was a residential area. The barge is now part of the Tsunami Educational Park in Banda Aceh.
