When I saw this in gcaptain just now the profile of the ship told me this was an old Norwegian short sea ship from the 1970s/80s, but not which one:
Quick search tells me that this is the old M/V Tananger, which was a regular along the Norwegian coast for more than 20 years under several names:
How she could have drifted around in the Mid-Atlantic for a year without being spotted, or run down by some ship feeling sure they had the ocean to themselves, is a mystery.
It prove that she was well built and able to handle whatever was thrown at her.
The crew must have battened down well before being lifted off though.
What will happen next? Will she be allowed to keep on drifting, or will somebody take her under tow, claiming salvage?
