RheintankJust bunkering along, my target for today is a German firm in Duisburg, Rheintank GmbH (translates as ‘Rhinetank’).
Company website: Rheintank has been a petroleum and oil supplier to inland navigation for more than fifty years now (another source gives 1951 as the foundation year). Also offered are drinking-water, paint, and other materials for bargepeople.
The company is not only active in the Rhine area but on the River Main and in the former GDR as well.
As the one boat shown on the website does not fly the house flag, the site’s flagoid will be pressed into service. Not counting the black holding lines, it is horizontally striped WRW with the word ‘RHEINTANK’ in white letters on the red stripe.
