Staten Island Ferry

The Staten Island Ferry is run by the City of New York for one pragmatic reason: To transport Staten Islanders to and from Manhattan. The ferry is the only non-vehicular mode of transportation between Staten Island and Manhattan. The vessels are double-ended steel ferries with a diesel electric propulsion system. Each vessel is designed to carry 4,400 passengers and 30 vehicles. There are five passenger cabins on four passenger decks, each with outdoor passenger areas.

As a subcontractor to Marinette Marine Corporation, Faith Technologies’ scope of work was to install devices on the four-passenger decks to specifically include:

  • Closed Circuit Television
  • Fire Alarm Devices
  • Lighting Fixtures & Controls
  • Marine Cable Installation & Termination (on the 3rd Ferry)
  • Sound Systems

Faith Technologies completed three Staten Island Ferry projects; approximately 2,500 hour labor projects for device, and an additional 3,500 hours for cable installation.
