The oil tanker Tempera is the first Double Acting Tanker of the world, which has flexible operation purposes and really interesting construction. The cargo ship has Ice Class 1A Super classification, which usually is given to the ice-breakers or ships with extremely strong hulls. The oil tanker Tempera has operate in deep ice, as during such sailings the vessel if going with stern ahead. The ship is designed with special stern construction, which has sharp design and protected propeller. The Tempera is equipped with a podded azimuthing propulsion unit that can rotate 360 degree at the stern. This ensures safety operations even in the ice with stern ahead. When operating in open sea without ice, the ship is sailing with bow ahead, so this is absolutely normal vessel. The ship can run into ice with thickness of 1.00 m and can keep speed of 5-6 knots, while the operational speed in open sea is 15.0 knots. Such improvements are really increasing the number of ports of call and the routes, which this oil tanker can serve. Tempera is really impressive ship and implements the most modern marine engineering improvements. And it will not be a surprise if we remind, that Tempera was announced for ship of the year of 2002.
