Chen Jie CTO
After graduation from Donghua University, Chen Jie joined Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies. He has been engaged in PEM fuel cell research and development for more than 13 years with rich experience in fuel cell stack development and system integration from catalyst, PEM, bipolar plate to fuel cell structure. Mr Chen has profound understanding of the reaction mechanism, failure mode and control management of fuel cells, becoming a genuine expert in this field.Since 2007, Mr. Chen has jointly developed a series of commercial fuel cell products with German company Linde Gas and American company Boeing, among other global customers. The lifetime of the portable power generation system developed with Linde Gas reached 20,000 hours, and the power density of the UAV stack developed with Boeing exceeds 1 kW/kg. Since 2015, Mr. Chen has led the development of 60, 80 and 100 kW high-power fuel cell systems with ultra-thin hybrid graphite and metal bipolar plates, which have unique advantages of high power density and long lifetime.
The fuel cell products developed by Mr. Chen have been widely used in medium and heavy logistics vehicles, large and medium buses, passenger cars and MW-scale fuel cell power stations.
