CDC Scotland Ltd is Iain (the brains) and Jacqueline (the intelligence) supported by IainMac (the glue holding everything together).
There are three additional directors.
When coming up with new designs Iain focuses on common-sense ideas to make Offshore O&G and Renewables better. Nothing earth-shattering or esoteric, just a willingness to look at the bigger picture while acknowledging and adapting the best of what other industries have to offer. He believes that innovation – when approached collaboratively in an atmosphere where it is ok to try – and fail, will deliver efficiencies leading to a more stable future for our industry.
CDC designs are protected by international patents while the vessel designs hold American Bureau of Shipping Approval in Principle.
Iain’s priority? Breaking free from the debilitating attitude of ‘doing it the way it has always been done’ and putting into practice ideas that will make a difference.
Jacqueline’s priority? Taking the engineering-speak and translating it into something that people want to buy.
