It looks like you're pointing to the air pump, if I'm not mistaken. It activates on a cold start for about 30 seconds supposedly to help warm up the cats. Subaru issued a recall on the air pump relay failure in the event that the relay gets stuck on causing the pump to stay on and possibly overheat causing fire.

I'd research on how to remove it. "Air pump delete faq"
