In 2012 plans were submitted to the local council planning office to erect a weather mast on the former oilrig construction yard. The mast will be used to monitor the weather for the three wind turbines that are planned to be be erected on the same site.

It is suggested that the mast will be in place for five years while the turbines are there, however it could be there for longer if the wind turbines duration is extended.
