Little Raith Wind Farm - Mossmorran

Mossmorran petrochemical complex is two separate plants, one half is operated by Shell which is identified as a Buncefield type site, and the other half is operated by ExxonMobil which is a COMAH site.

Built within close proximity to the plant is 9 x 410 ft Industrial Wind Turbines that has been identified as having the potential to impact on the pollutants dispersed by the chemical plant, by dispersing the pollutants in higher concentrations in the local area. Despite the research other wind farm developers are putting forward speculative applications in the area.

A wind farm that has been built next to a COMAH and Buncefield site in the central Fife area. Early research indicates that the turbines may distribute the pollutants from Mossmorran in higher concentrations in the local area.

Captured between 7:00pm -8:30pm from Lochgelly and Little Raith Wind Farm.

The Fife Ethylene Plant operated by ExxonMobil is flaring for an unknown reason. Usually when they are flaring it is an indication that there is a situation at the plant.

The FEP plant is a Top Tier COMAH site, and they share the facilities with Shell which operate a site that has been identified as a Bruncefield site.

Located in close proximity is an Industrial Wind Farm compromising of 9x410ft Industrial Wind Turbines.

During the past two weeks there has been some residents affected with shadow flicker and strobing in the evenings from the wind turbines due to the flares.

There is already local concerns regarding the various impacts of the chemical plant, and the wind farm has been identified as having the potential to increase pollutants from the Fife Ethylene Plant in the local area in higher concentrations.

The Lochgelly Community Council and Loch of Shining Waters are conducting a petition for permanent Air Quality Monitoring Stations to be put in place in the affected communities - http://goo.gl/Btw0s

Loch of Shining Waters is also conducting an independent Mossmorran Perception study to try and assess the various concerns raised in various communities, to have these concerns addressed - http://goo.gl/41115

There is already local concerns regarding the various impacts of the chemical plant, and the wind farm has been identified as having the potential to increase pollutants from the Fife Ethylene Plant in the local area in higher concentrations.

Video was uploaded on the 8th October 2012 and Mossmorran is still flaring
