Richard With, which is employed on the Norwegian Coastal Express service of Hurtigruten ASA, ran aground at the port of Trondheim on the west coast of Norway at 0757 this morning, the company said. The ship suffered propeller damage and took on board water through a leak in a seal and the 153 passengers on board have been evacuated.
The vessel is now sitting on a mudbank and divers have been sent to investigate damage to the hull.
By mid-morning, no damage to the hull had been detected, but it is expected that the ship will have to enter dry dock for repairs and inspection.
