Remote disassembly of radiologically burdened large components is among the most sophisticated and complex activities in the dismantling of nuclear installations. High local dose rates and contamination levels, combined with complicated designs and geometries of the object to be dismantled, plus insufficient accessibility, imply major challenges in the dismantling of nuclear facilities. Usually the shielding effect of water is used during the dismantling period. Other dismantling activities require dry ambiences.
