San Marco Petroli’s terminal is located in Venice in the industrial area of Porto Marghera. It is officially recognized by the Ministry of Industry to receive petroleum products from national and/or foreign refinery companies and maintain in storage with excise duty suspension.
The terminal, spread over an area of 180,000 square meters, has a total capacity of 154,860 cubic meters, divided among 24 tanks of variable volumes ranging from 1,000 to 14,000 cubic meters, connected by pipelines to two privately-owned berths located at the southern end of the industrial canal.
The terminal is operative every day of the year and is able to unload/load vessels with a capacity of up to 30,000 tons.
San Marco Petroli is able to receive and re-ship both by land – with road tankers and railway – as well as by sea – a formula that distinguishes San Marco Petroli from all other companies, making it unique throughout the territory.
The company has restructured the area of the warehouse by creating two fully-equipped and functional areas for the management of gasoline and particularly for bitumen. Currently, the company focuses on the commercialization for the retail and wholesale networks but also provides service to third parties, including storage and shipment of petroleum products both in Italy and abroad.
Road Tankers. A completely automated system allows the terminal to handle 250-300 trucks per day. The favorable location of the terminal in proximity to the main roads and highways, a vast parking area and the high efficiency of the loading and weighing equipment, consent reduced waiting time in general for the tankers.
Railway. A railway track with an attached platform for loading/unloading of rail tankers connects to the railway station in Mestre (VE) allowing products to be shipped by means of railway, both foreign and domestic.
Tanker Vessels. San Marco Petroli performs loading operations for vessel tankers for export or cabotage in other Italian coastal warehouses up to a capacity of 30,000 tons.
Bunkering. The warehouse furthermore performs bunkering operations for large cruise ships in the Venice port. The transport is guaranteed and diligently organized thanks to the collaboration with a local business, whose fleet consists of 14 tankers.
