Construction of the Kais Power station began in March of 2017 as a joint-venture of GS Engineering & Construction and Daelim Industrial.[2][1][3] In 2018 the Minister of Energy visited the construction site.[4] Zawya.com states that the project is delayed, as of April 8, 2019.[1] The African Power Platform classifies the project as "under construction" as of November 2019.[5]

SPE's development plan states the plant is expected to be commissioned 2019-2020.[6] However as of July 2021 the power station is not included in SPE's list of operating plants.[7]
