Thanks for the advice.

Bacula: "Multi-volume saves. When a Volume is full, Bacula automatically 
requests the next Volume and continues the backup."

This means I could create several eg 10 TB-volumes, skip the 16 TB-limitation 
and still get to use the whole 40 TB-diskspace available, right? Or is the 
referred "volumes" different tapes?
