A dominant factor is the sea state under which operations can be undertaken; ship length is important, as pitch motion is often a limiting factor [4]. Delivering fuel in SS7 and stores in SS6 will require a ship of at least 200m whereas ships of 170m or 150m will be at a Sea State or two less due to ship motion. Features most associated with naval vessels such as shock tolerance are not generally demanded but the replenishment ship’s radiated noise could well become an issue during the replenishment activity.

Operability limiting requirements for RAS-operation used in the study were taken from NATO STANAG 4154 [1]. Operability for the North Sea (annual) and North Atlantic (in winter) are calculated based on these limiting requirements. Short-term statistics for a significant wave height of 6 meters (top of SS6) and a wave period range representative for the sea areas mentioned above are also calculated. Only short crested seas were evaluated. The effects of two roll-damping systems were assessed: these were a passive stabilizer tank on the forecastle deck and one pair of fin stabilizers.
