The Commercial Marine Network, in partnership with Seawork and Maritime Journal, introduce Series 2 of ‘Get set for Workboat 2050’. An online conference series of expert panels navigating the waters of decarbonisation compliance and looking at critical aspects of vessel operations and safety in the workboat industry. Series 2 will deliver 5 free-to-attend sessions focussed on efficient business operations, optimising fleet performance, and safety in the working environment.

In association withThe Workboat Association.




Owners, operators, fuel providers and engine manufacturers need to get on board with Workboat 2050. Growing pressures to decarbonise across all marine sectors mean it is more important than ever to understand the opportunities available to you, both short term and long term, in order to meet these mandatory targets. Incorporate the necessary changes into your plans now to ensure you are best placed to make the right capital expenditure decisions on maintenance, replacement & new technology.

M&H Stage V Marine engines are your single solution for meeting EPA Tier 4, EU Stage V and exceeds IMO III requirements. Our engines reduce emissions of CO2 by 30%, NOx by 96% and PM by 97% over EU Stage 1 engines, which are fitted in a majority of vessels. With one easy step your vessels can comply with both EPA, EU and IMO III emissions regulations. Our integrated engine and after-treatment package is more compact than other IMO III packages, therefore, saving space and allowing easier maintenance in confined engine rooms. These engines deliver a fully useable torque curve and a lower fuel consumption based on current marine engines.

Available today are engines ranging from 55-317kW (74-425HP). We have engines in development up to 680kW (925HP). Our engines are ideal for propulsion both direct and hybrid, auxiliary and generator applications. For more information, contact us on 07767 701 251 or visit our website
