Fuel Cell Energy Namibia we are…

… Matthias Zipfel and Björn Herbert

We both grew up in Namibia and went to school in the DHPS. This is where we met and we have been friends ever since. After school we both went to Germany to get a further education after high school.

Björn Herbert born 12.01.1981 in Windhoek Namibia.

I went to the German Armed Forces and studied Mechanical Engineering (FH) within the framework of my career as an army officer. Since 2012 I have moved back home where I am currently working as a civil engineer. In 2013 I founded the company Elite Safaris where I specialised in expeditions in most extreme terrain as well as driving instructing in these conditions. I am now looking forward to this new opportunity , selling fuel cells in Southern Africa.

Matthias Zipfel born. 20.03.1981 in Windhoek Namibia.

I also went into a technical career in an apprenticeship for industrial electronics. Afterwards I did my government accredited technician at the Munich Technical College with special focus on energy – and automation technology. After several years in the automotive industry, I started to work for the company SFC Energy AG near Munich. SFC Energy AG is the company that develops and builds the Direct Methanol Fuel Cells (DMFC) which we want to distribute in Southern Africa.
