How To Use MMF Single Strand?

We're setting up a large CCTV and WiFi system for a customer who has multiple buildings. Due to the size of the system and the demands it will have, we really want a 10G connection between the buildings.

Good news: they have fiber already. Bad news: it's a single strand of MMF.

Any idea how to make this work? I can find single strand fiber to ethernet converters online, but that reduces it to gigabit speed. There's also a load of lovely equipment for single strand SMF.

If you want specs on the cable, here's what it says: WIREPATH 1 FIBER MMF (50/125) SSF-S 250-OM3 5002371 C2 OFNP C(ETL)US FT-6...

We'd love to pull 12 strand through the pipe, but my boss is worried that they might have used a plumbing bend. Really want to avoid having to dig up the pipe and replace it.
