A Department of Energy and Climate Change spokesman said the scrapping of the scheme was a matter for the developer, but the decision "was made on purely technical grounds and reflects the many complex challenges of constructing offshore windfarms".
The scheme had drawn criticism from environmentalists who were worried about its impact on marine wildlife in the Bristol Channel and campaigns who have branded the project for 720-ft high turbines as unsightly.
According to the Guardian, round 3 windfarms such as those in Dogger Bank, Hornsea and East Anglia, were set up to help the government generate 15 per cent of energy from renewable sources by 2020.
