In 2012 SMIT Salvage successfully removed the diesel oil from the grounded jack-up work platform SEP Orion at Sao Luis, Brazil. SMIT Salvage was also awarded the wreck removal contract.

Floating sheerleg Taklift 4 was used as a work platform, using underwater cutting equipment to cut the legs above the SEP Orion platform.

After the parbuckling and refloating operation was performed any potential pollutants were removed. The platform was towed out in a stable condition.
