Title: PROTECTIVE SHIELD WITH POSITIONING MARK
Abstract:
The invention relates to a protective shield (20) for a rotor blade (10) of a wind turbine. The shield (20) is destined to protect the leading edge section (13) of the rotor blade (10) from erosion. It is furthermore destined to cover at least a part of the leading edge (131) of the rotor blade (10). It is preformed with a shape which approximately corresponds to the contour of the leading edge section (13) where it is destined to be mounted to. The shield (20) furthermore comprises a mark (30) which allows to accurately position the shield (20) at a predetermined position on the surface of the rotor blade (10) or which allows to accurately position a tool at a predetermined position on the surface of the shield (20). The invention is also related to a method of accurately positioning a protective shield (20) on the surface of a rotor blade (10) of a wind turbine and to a method of documenting how precisely the shield (20) has actually been attached to the surface of the rotor blade (10).
