China's space-tracking ship Yuanwang-6 completed its first overhaul after trail voyages Friday, preparing for future missions.

Docking at a port on east China coast, the vessel represents the third generation of the country's Yuanwang space-tracking ships.

The nine-month overhaul started in April 2019 at Jiangnan Shipyard in Shanghai, the vessel's first major maintenance after it was commissioned in 2008. It has improved the ship's power system and enhanced the operability of onboard equipment.

According to the country's satellite maritime tracking and controlling authorities, the ship will soon set sail to carry out intensive maritime monitoring missions.
