the beginning

Power Line Africa has its roots in the electrical contracting sector of Namibia ever since the company HO Himmel Electrical Services Ltd was incorporated in 1969.

The company was continuously growing since starting off with house wiring at the time of the expansion of electrification to farms and other remote areas. The business model was expanded to include building installations and in 1992, when Namibia embarked on its rural electrification programme, the company entered this market segment as well.

To date we have successfully completed projects valued in excess of U$50 million in this sector and completed up to 85% of the electrification projects in Namibia as at 2008.
