Last year Wartsila Corp. announced plans to develop a new channel for its products, services and information via the Internet. Through e-business, Wart- sila's hopes to put its expertise and tech- nical resources at its customers' finger- tips. The e-business functions started with tailored services to dedicated users and customers in pilot testing from mid-

February 2001. Access will be provided in three different levels of accessibility and guaranteed security: • The Open Level providing access to publicly-available information, such as pre-engineering concepts and installa- tion design information, etc.; • Registered Level requiring the user to register for customized information; • Agreement Level authorizing access to those users having an agreement with
