Tempera Wins Ship of the Year

Monday, June 23, 2003
The Society of Naval Architects of Japan has recently announced that it has awarded its ‘Ship of the Year 2002’ accolade to the aframax tanker Tempera, built by Sumitomo Heavy Industries (SHI), owned by Fortum Oil & Gas of Finland and classed by Lloyd’s Register. Tempera is the largest tanker in the world to be built to Lloyd’s Register’s 1A Super Ice Class notation. It is also the world’s first double-acting tanker (DAT), which means that it can proceed through light ice conditions ahead and through heavy ice conditions astern, due to its azipod propulsion configuration, specially designed aft end and ability to turn through 180°. Lloyd’s Register also classes Tempera’s sister-ship, Mastera. “Sumitomo, Fortum and the designers, Kvaerner Masa-Yards, are to be congratulated on this award,” says Niels Overgaard, Lloyd’s Register’s Business Manager – Tankers. “Lloyd’s Register is proud to have been associated with these highly innovative vessels.” Lloyd’s Register has extensive experience with ice-class vessels, with over 1,000 ships totaling 11 million gross tonnes being built to Lloyd’s Register ice classes over the past 25 years. Of these, over 320 ships have the Lloyd’s Register class notations 1AS or 1A.
