The assessment of the technical condition of the structure in industrial facilities is sometimes very difficult, even for experienced construction specialists. First, this applies to facilities in which there are quite specific cubature constructions, as objects located in the coal mine facility, or coal-fired CHP plants. In the case of energy plants, such a typical construction that causes the most problems when assessing the technical condition is coal or fine coal storage tank usually in the form of bunker batteries supplying power boilers. In practice, access to the interior of such bunkers is possible only when the power unit is put out of service (boiler extinguish) in order to repair, upgrade or expand it. In presented paper on the example of two coal bunkers (from a battery consisting of four such constructions) of one of the power plants located in southern Poland, the authors want to present and discuss some specific problems that occurred in the assessment and analysis of the technical condition of this type of specific industrial structure.
