A Barin AB 13/S has been delivered to the government in Thailand.

A new bucket-type underbridge inspection unit from Barin will be operating in Thailand in the next few weeks.

The bridge construction section of the country’s government department of rural roads, based in Bangkok, specifically asked for a Barin model from the manufacturer’s AB Line bridge inspection range.

The AB 13/S was delivered this month and in April Barin engineers will travel to Thailand to prepare it for use and provide training. Manufactured in Italy and assembled on a 3-axle Scania P 310 lB 6x2 MLB truck chassis, the government will use the unit to inspect all bridges on the country’s road network.

All Barin machines in the range require just one carriageway in transport and work configuration, allowing traffic to continue moving.

Features of the AB 13/S include a bridge barrier clearance of 3.6 m, a sidewalk clearance 3.2 m. Horizontal outreach underbridge is 14.5 m, while maximum vertical depth underbridge 19 m and maximum overhead outreach is 16.7 m. Maximum bucket capacity is 250 kg. Gross vehicle weight is 24 tonnes.
