The Danish tanker “Dart” is sitting high and dry today after running aground early Thursday morning in Norway.

This ship was en route Karmøy to Florø when she went aground overnight in Åfjorden in Hyllestad, local media reports.

The 67-meter Dart is listed as a “waste disposal vessel” and is reportedly carrying “mud.” There have been no reports of pollution or injuries to the seven crewmembers.

It is unclear exactly what caused the Dart to go aground, but from the looks of AIS data it would appear that a navigational error may have been made. At this time GPS “spoofing” is not believed to have been a factor in the incident.

More photos and video of the vessel aground can be found HERE.
