Founder / CEO

Dr. Adel earned Masters degree and Doctorate (with distinction) in Mechanical Engineering from the Vienna University of Technology, specializing in advanced and alternative energy systems. The Master thesis was on the development and construction of a concentrated photovoltaic pilot plant with parabolic troughs. The doctoral thesis focused on the development of a new generation of parabolic trough collectors to maximize the local content in developing countries. Dr. Adel is a holder of several patents in the field of the Concentrated Solar Power, and the inventor of SOLABOLIC technology. From 2006 to 2008 he was a project manager at a leading company of energy services and constructions in the Middle East. Later on, he was responsible for the factory expansion project of Böhler Welding Group of Voestalpine, including the installation of a new production line in South East Asia, and the optimization of production processes in regards to the “Lean Manufacturing” philosophy. Dr. Adel worked as a research assistant at Vienna University of Technology, Institute for Energy Systems and Thermodynamics. He founded SOLABOLIC in 2013 based on his own patented technology, and since then he has been working full time on it.

Mag. Immanuel Gfall
completed his master study in High Energy Physics while working full-time as a scientist at the Austrian Academy of Science. From 2009 to 2013 he was responsible for the mechanical development of a sub detector group and the development of a new cooling system for a large particle physics experiment located in Japan. He has spent several months in Japan and at CERN with research activities on cooling and mechanics. He managed a group of students and coordinated scientists from various countries and cultural backgrounds. By doing so, he gained first management experience before swapping to the private sector. At Frequentis AG, a company dedicated to provide communication systems for life-critical applications, he received project management training and held positions as project manager, service manager and requirements engineer working on a program with a governmental customer.
