Four new 30,000-gallon juice tanks are installed Monday at Hood River Juice Company, in the port waterfront business park. The new 50-foot tanks bring to seven the number of vessels for juice storage once the company’s expansion is complete in spring 2014. Opera-tions Manager Bob Francis said the company will be able to double its production with com-pletion of the new production facility, on the north side of the existing facility. Honald Crane of The Dalles lowered the 14-ton tanks into place. The concrete pad is designed to take on three more tanks.
