Greek Oil Tanker Runs Aground

Wednesday, May 16, 2007
A Greek oil tanker carrying 81,200 tons of crude ran aground in Denmark but there was no immediate danger of an oil spill, authorities said. The Greece-registered Minerva Concert hit rocks off the island of Samsoe in central Denmark, the Danish Navy said. There were no reports of injuries among the crew or damage to the ship. Tugboats would attempt to pull the tanker free Tuesday, under the supervision of an environmental protection vessel, the navy said. The tanker was en route from the Danish port of Fredericia to Rotterdam, the Netherlands, when it ran aground. The Danish Maritime Authority is investigating. Source: Business Week
