The paper is focused on the decommissioning process from the point of view of steam generator dismantling. A brief description of the steam generator (used in nuclear power plants with VVER 440 type reactor) and used computer code VISIPLAN 3D ALARA are given. The main part deals with the created model and dismantling strategy together with variable input parameters — decay time and decontamination. The obtained results — external exposure of workers and the influence of time and pre-dismantling decontamination — are studied. Also detailed analyses of every dismantling step considered are presented.
