Aspin Group have partnered with Aquarius to successfully develop a Road2Rail Land Rover mounted drilling rig. The new prototype vehicle was officially unveiled at the recent RAIL2015 event at Long Marston.
The vehicle will greatly reduce the amount of manual handling involved where previously the 1.2ton rig would need to be pushed on hand trolleys. The cab will now provide safe transport for up to 5 personnel in a road and rail legal vehicle and with the addition of a further trailer to the front, provides increased storage space for samples, consumables and tools. The vehicle will also allow safe travel under live overhead line equipment. This collaboration will provide Aspin with the ability to mobilise and demobilise the GI rig efficiently on track related projects.
