Is this allowed anymore? I was under the impression with the revision of Section 10 that outbuildings etc. are no longer allowed to be fed with USEB90 and a ground plate. The only grounding point is at the service entrance, and everything else to be bonded. Because 'equipotentiality'.

The photo is correct. No longer allowed to install another ground at the outbuilding. Must run a bond with the feed

Will need to run a quadplex and add an insulated bond to it now to meet the new code.

Same method used with the old code if you used overhead to feed a building housing livestock

Why would you add a bond to quadplex?

He means you would use one of the insulated conductors as a bonding conductor.

Sorry, I meant add an insulated conductor with the triplex (for a neutral) and use the supporting cable as a bond.

Or use quadplex.
