Marine Services

MH Bland Marine Services is both the principal stevedoring company as well as the leading provider and operator of harbourcraft, tugs and barges in this busy port of Gibraltar.

As the port leading marine services provider, we can receive, store and deliver supplies, spare parts and lubricants to vessels in the Bay and Strait of Gibraltar.

The company operates 2 dedicated lubricant supply barges in Gibraltar with a combined capacity of 980,000 litres, together with a fleet of support craft and barges.

MH Bland Marine Services operates its own marine lubricant bulk storage facility with a capacity of 600,000 litres. This permanent strategic stock of lubricants ensure that we can deliver on behalf of our principles 24/7. The facility is rated to the highest HSSE codes and regulations.

Our Services


The company has equipment ranging from a 250 ton Gottwald mobile harbour crane with a 36-ton lifting capacity and a variety of heavy and lighter forklift trucks, to smaller cranes suitable for bulk cargoes.

Marine Grade Lubricant Deliveries

The company operates two lubricant supply vessels. MHB Oilfish was re-commissioned in 2011. She is double-hulled with a total capacity of 480,000 ltrs, fitted with updated electronics and new engine room facilities. Dragonfish has a total capacity of 500,000 ltrs. Both vessels operate to the highest HSSE standards.

All our vessels are surveyed and certified annually by Gibraltar Maritime Authority’s surveyors. We deliver lubricants on behalf of Shell and B.P. amongst others, to the high HSSE standards.


Gibraltar’s strategic location at the entrance to the Mediterranean and its special status within the EU make it the ideal point from which to conduct re-provisioning exempt from VAT.

MH Bland Marine Services’ own fleet of harbourcraft tugs and barges together with the company’s team of stevedores offer a integrated range of services. This makes us highly competitive and guarantees a reliable service for our clients.

Flexible working practices, good communication, competitive prices and Gibraltar’s direct air links with the UK add to the port’s attraction for re-provisioning operations.

Carbon Neutral

In an effort to become one of Gibraltar’s leading Carbon Neutral Companies, the MH Bland Group, has entered into an initiative with World Kinect Energy Services via Gib Oil to offset the expected carbon emissions produced by all MH Bland Marine Services’ vessels.

This demonstrates MH Bland’s continued commitment to decarbonisation and neutralising its environmental impact through the contribution and support of green and sustainable projects.
