This station operated from 2000 to 2008, monitoring emissions from the nearby shale oil plant.

Until 2006, the Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy (DOAS) technique measured gas pollutants over 2 light paths of 175m and 350m. Monitoring of these pollutants stopped after recording 18 months of low concentrations, following the closure of the shale oil plant in 2004.
