News from the vesseltracker web site on 26 March 2011:
"The "Nedland" ran aground at Grønsund in the morning of Mar 24, 2011. The vessel has meanwhile been refloated and towed to the port of Korsør, where it will be surveyed for damage. The ship was underway from Landskrona, where it had departed on Mar 22 at 3.30 p.m., to Nörrkoping, when it got stuck between Falster and Møn. It had no pilot on board, but it was a pilot who observed that the ship was stuck, and reported it to the Danish authorities. These are currently investigating the circumstances surrounding the grounding and the "Nedland" will not be allowed to proceed before the Søfartsstyrelsen has given permission."

News report from the vesseltracker web site on 5 December 2012:
"Enroute Lidköping-Nyköping the "Nedland" ran aground on the edge of the Böttö fairway off Gothenburg in the morning of Dec 4, 2012. The vessel Nedland had anchored north of Rivö to bunker oil from a bunker tanker. But before the two boats had managed to connect, the freighter drifted westward, towards the fairway. The crew then tried to get up the anchor, but did not succeed, and the vessel continued to drag and slid to end up far off the fairway northwest of Rivö. A tug and pilot were alerted. The Crew of the "Nedland" pumped out some water from its ballast tanks as the ship eased somewhat. After the anchor was recovered, the ship slid off the shoal. At lunchtime the vessel was at anchor again, while waiting for the representatives from the Transport Agency to come out and inspect the damage. Also divers were to inspect the hull."
