One Team MDL
The Student who became the Master
Once MDL’s first apprentice, today Liam heads up the department where his career begun.

Liam Cordiner started with MDL in 2012 as the first electrical apprentice; in that first year there was only him and his manager in the workshop.

Through his apprenticeship Liam was directly involved in some of the most impressive MDL projects - such as the company’s largest electrical delivery at that time: a package of 40 winches and 4 tensioners for a clients’ four Brazilian vessels.

After being the only student in his college class to pass all six theory exams on his first attempt, and one of the few to pass the 6.5hr practical exam on his second go, Liam became a fully qualified electrical technician.

But rather than moving on, he remained with the MDL electrical team - at that point already quadrupled in size - as a full-time employee. Since then, the projects’ sizes and complexities had only continued to grow, and so did Liam’s experience and responsibilities - culminating in him taking the role of Electrical Team Lead in early 2020.
