Inauguration of Mabanaft Tank Terminal at the
Teltow Canal, Berlin
Three hundred guests from Germany and abroad come to Berlin on July 26, 1969 to take part in the inauguration of the new tank terminal on the Teltow Canal in Berlin-Lankwitz: representatives from government authorities, the petroleum industry and employees of Marquard & Bahls. The tank terminal, built on an old coal storage site, consists of four tanks each with a 5,000 cbm capacity to store middle distillates for the time being. Three further 5,000 cbm tanks for gasoline storage are planned, as is the construction of railway facilities to process unit trains. Wholesalers in the Berlin area are to be supplied with heating oil from this tank terminal. One part of the new tank terminal is earmarked for Berlin's reserves.
