According to the program “Development of the Karaganda energy complex in 2012-2023”, the preliminary cost of the project for the construction of Karaganda TPS-4 power station was 380 billion tenge (2,5 billion dollars). Kazakhstan Utility Networks LLP intended to invest 20 percent of its own funds in the project, and 80 percent of the funds would be borrowed. [1]

In April 2017, Dinmukhamet Idrisov signed a memorandum of mutual cooperation for the construction of the power station in the Karaganda region.[2]

According to a 2019 study on the district heat supply system of the city of Karaganda by Russian and Kazakhstani university researchers, the available capacity of the proposed plant for construction could be at least 530 Gcal/h and 700 MW to potentially account for the retirement of units at Karaganda TPS-3 power station and TPS-1.[1]

There are no known updates on the power station, so the project may be shelved or abandoned.
