What happens if the salvor invokes the SCOPIC Clause but it turns out that his salvage reward is big enough to meet his expenses?

The salvor is penalised: the Article 13 award or settlement will be discounted by 25% of the difference between the Article 13 award or settlement figure and the amount of special compensation that he would have received if the SCOPIC Clause had been invoked on the first day of the services.
