Das unter isländischer Flagge fahrende Containerschiff Godafoss lief am 17. Februar 2011 vor der Küste Norwegens am Skagerrak auf Grund. Schweröl aus zwei leckgeschlagenen Tanks lief aus und bedrohte die Inseln Akerøya und Asmaløy. Die Inseln gehören zum einzigen maritimen Nationalpark Norwegens, dem Ytre Hvaler. Der Ölteppich war nach Angaben der Umweltstiftung WWF am Freitag 10,5 Kilometer lang.

On 17 February 2011 an Icelandic-owned container ship ran aground around the islands of Hvaler on Norway’s southeast coast. The cargo vessel Godafoss was leaking oil in an area that borders the new Outer Oslo Fjord National Park. It was unknown exactly how much oil is on board the ship, built in 1995, but estimates are as much as 800 tonnes. Oil was leaking from two tanks that can contain 250 tonnes each on both sides of the ship, which currently sits lopsided where it has run aground.
