uuuuuuuuummmmmmmmmm no, not if it's SVMO. The clue is in the last letter, "O", which stands for "OPERATOR". If they want a Marine Engineer, the lowest Certificate qualified to do all these things is 4th Class. The Small Vessel Machinery Operator certification is designed to allow small fishing vessels to take out up to 12 passengers on a whale watching tour, it was never intended to replace Engineers. I know, I wrote the Examinations for it!
