The increase of the offshore deep water production activities in Brazil based on the growth of the FPSO/FSO fleet, became the offloading operations a critical issue related to the possibilities of platform downtime. In order to improve the actual operational behavior, a new generation of shuttle tankers equipped with dynamic positioning systems is now under construction. The intent of this paper is to present the work performed for the dimensioning of the first generation of the DP Shuttle Tankers specifically projected to operate on Brazilian deep waters [1]. The system is intended to be installed in existing ships converted to operate as DP shuttle tankers.
