DCM Marine Power & Propulsion

Excellence in Energy Efficient Design

DCM Marine Power & Propulsion

It is inevitable that the imperatives of Global Warming necessitate fundamental changes to the powering of ships and boats.


Due to the production costs of fuel and evolving emissions regulations the demand and cost of marine gas oil (Diesel) is predicted to double over the period to 2030.


With a focus on the fishing fleet, coastal, harbour ferries and workboats, DCM Power will with technology partners, leading Equipment Manufacturers, specify design and supply fully optimised Hybrid Propulsion solutions which enable owners to prepare for the significant challenges which lie ahead.


The retrofitting of Hybrid Propulsion systems to an existing boat requires the matching of components to the specific demands of that vessel. Therefore, the engineering of a bespoke solution is required.


DCM Power & Propulsion are uniquely placed to quantify the benefits and provide the best engineered solution
