The objective of these preliminary studies has been the development of a replenishment system by means of which the transfer of packaged or fluid materials could take place under more severe sea state conditions than has hitherto been possible, and to extend the range of applications to suit present day requirements of expanding offshore activities in the oil industry and seabed mining. The main features of this study are categorized under the following headings: (i) basic design considerations; (ii) ship motion and sea motion; (iii) technical description of system; (iv) control and transfer velocity referencing; (v) rigging; (vi) compatibility with other systems; (vii) liquid transfer; and (viii) other applications. Order from BSRA as No. 52,194.
