At a top secret facility on Alaska's the North Shore, one of the darkest secrets of the Cold War remains in storage. A substance recovered from a meteor, it has the same properties of anti-matter. Called ICE-10 is a dooms day substance that if released would start a chain reaction destroying the world. Created as a weapon of last resort, it was kept in the far north where the cold helped keep it under control. The deadliness of this material becomes evident when a military plane is dispatched to bring back a small amount for testing. When the plane crashes, the material escapes and an entire town in Northern Canada is wiped out.

Despite the filmed title being Super Tanker there is in fact no Tanker present.
The ship is in fact a Bulk Cargo Carrier designed to carry large quantity of small dry stores eg grain, ore, coal, cement etc as opposed to a Tanker which is a dedicated liquid carrier (usually of oil or petroleum products).
...yet oddly in the pre-sailing briefing the ship is correctly refered to the as a Bulk Carrier. See more
