IMHO , the features you point out are part of a tank farm ,
from looking @ google earth - it is imposible to tell if they are fuel storage , water storage or sewage / waste processing .
but i am certain they are simple cylindrical storage tanks .
as for your description of them as " turrets " the projections you can see [ all pointing SW ] are just imaging anomolies , - please look at this
area [ 200m south west of your co ordinates :
8°43'28.36"N , 167°44'7.99"E
not how all the projections are orientated on the same bearing -- thats another clue that they are glitches .
hope this helps
PS - if you want to know what each feature actually is , the island is -
" KWAJALEIN ATOLL "
switching on the " google community place marks " layer feathure in GE and googling the atoll name at these sites :
Google earth communoty
should turn up some info on what each feature actually is .
