Concentrated solar power (CSP) capacity has experimented a high grow- ing worldwide. Nowadays, CSP industry is focus on decrease the operation and maintenance (O&M) costs and to set the adequate non-destructive testing techniques to inspect the plants. The implementation of Condition monitoring system will re- duce O&M costs and energy losses. The main objective of this paper is to present a review of the condition monitoring techniques for solar absorber tubes, insulated pipes and storage tanks of parabolic trough and linear Fresner receiver plants.
